Step 2: Endorse the Process

Step 2 establishes participants, roles, and responsibilities for each team. The process is endorsed by discussing, possibly modifying, and then finalizing with all teams the desired outcomes and actions to be taken. Endorsing the process includes clarifying teams and expectations for use in the process, developing a schedule, and confirming the project-specific decision process.

During Step 2 of a project in the Project Development phase, for example, the Project Leadership Team (PLT) and the Project Staff may form a Technical Team to support the project. The PLT leads the effort to gain endorsement of the process.
