Have you ever been part of a project
where not everyone has the same view
of where the project is heading? This
lack of clarity can breed confusion:
People start pulling in different direc-
tions, building up unrealistic expec-
tations, and harbouring unnecessary
worries and fears.
While it s normal as part of a project
to put the detailed plans, controls and
reporting mechanisms into place, how
do you get everyone on the same page
to start with?
This is accomplished by creating a
Project Initiation Document (PID) --
the top-level project planning docu-
In it, you bring together all of the
information needed to get your project
started, and communicate that key
information to the project s stakehold-
ers.With a well-put-together project
initiation document, you can let every-
one understand where the project s
heading from the outset.
Your project initiation document
does the following:
• Defines your project and its scope.
• Justifies your project.
• Secures funding for the project, if
• Defines the roles and responsibil-
ities of project participants.
• Gives people the information they
need to be productive and effective
right from the start.
By creating a PID, you ll answer the
questions: What? Why? Who? How?
You can also use a project charter
instead of a project initiation document
for these purposes as they are very
However, a project charter usually
has less detail. so a project initiation
document is more suited to projects
where you have the resources to write
a more detailed document.
Section 1: What?
This section tells the reader what
the project is seeking to achieve. In it,
describe the problem that the project
is seeking to solve, as well as a full
definition of the project.
This section will typically cover the
What is the context of the project,
and why is the work needed? Briefly
describe the idea or problem, and dis-
cuss why this project is relevant and
timely. The details will come later, so
use this section to highlight briefly
how this project came to be.
