The Plan Phase places the focus on the audience,
level of detail, team members, and proper content.
The Plan phase incorporates the tasks that are required to ensure that the project is properly scoped with the correct focus, level of detail, team members, and proper content. Planning does not make a project longer or more complicated, but ensures that erroneous assumptions do not become part of the project approach and plan. Policies, Processes, and Procedures are usually dependent upon other resources; therefore, it is important that all the puzzle pieces fit.
