Tips on Project Definition Documents

Dimitri Ivanenko recently posted on the PMI blog that even though document management holds a small chunk or the project management process, it is still necessary and important. The process detailed by Dimitri starts off with the project definition documents which are created in the planning phase.

A project definition document should include the following:

Basic project data: Goals, objectives and any business issues to be resolved

Project execution parameters: Definitions of project boundaries, key policies and procedures that are specific to the organization and that must be followed to integrate the project work and its result into the organization during and after the product delivery

Required project management methodology: Governs how the project is planned, how each phase is executed and what's required to move from one phase to another

What are some other tips that are not on this list on putting together project definition documents.
