  • Ahmed Abdi thinks this is interesting:

Some organizations have established policies that standardize all projects, while others allow the project team to choose and tailor the most appropriate approach for their individual project. For instance, one organization may treat a feasibility study as routine pre-project work, another may treat it as the first phase of a project, and a third may treat the feasibility study as a separate, stand-alone project. Likewise, one project team may divide a project into two phases whereas another project team may choose to manage all the work as a single phase. Much depends on the nature of the specific project and the style of the project team or organization.
