Re: How to create a product oriented work breakdown structure?

Hi Falcon,

Duncan

Re: Which Project Phase is HyperCare?

Interesting question. Personally, I would have it as part of the project. I would include hypercare and stabilisation in the project plan and handover to the support team to complete the hypercare period before I closed the project.
