Project Kick Off
What is a project kick-off? A project kick-off meeting is the first meeting with the project team and the client of the project where applicable. This meeting is the time to establish common goals and the purpose of the project.
Starting a project without a kick-off meeting is like setting off on a trip without any concrete plan. You are likely to see some cool things along the way, but you will probably end your vacation with some weary travelers and a fairly sparse photo album. A good project kick-off meeting sets the course for a successful and smooth project collaboration.
As the first meeting between the project team members and possibly the client or sponsor, the project kick-off is the best time to set expectations and foster strong team morale. Usually, the kick-off takes place after the statement of work or project poster has been finalized and all parties are ready to go.
Your kick-off is an opportunity to orient the team to the work at hand, decide how everyone will work together, and establish common project goals and check-ins. Think about discussing things like how you will communicate, how often you will meet, what the timeline is, and what could slow the project down.
A project kick-off meeting should not be an information broadcast. If you need to share background information in advance, do it on a shared document like a Confluence page. Project kick-off meetings should actively involve the team and anyone else who is a stakeholder or whose work will be affected by the project.
Set up a meeting agenda to keep the meeting streamlined and efficient, try making a list of questions you want to ask your team. Prepare some answers based on questions you think your team might have.
For client work, your project kick-off meeting will include introducing the team working on the project, talking the client through the project stages, and agreeing on how to effectively work together to successfully deliver the project. It’s a chance for your team to get a stronger contextual grounding in the project, to show their understanding and enthusiasm for the project, and set the stage for a positive working relationship with your client.
