"...This is an excellent program. I'm so glad that I stumbled on to this when researching for task management programs. Very low learning curv, quite flexible, and the price is right. Tried at least 20 other programs, either too complicated, too expensive, or poor documentation..."

Identify reasons to terminate a project:

  • Project have lost its competitiveness or relevance of its benefits (probably because it suffers from enormously growing costs or shifting duration);
  • Cardinal change of underlying assumptions and needs, so they are not relevant yet (a project is no more an effective solution for targeted problems, or they appear already solved);
  • Change in the project external environment, so the risks increase drastically;
  • An organization owning and sponsoring a project does not longer exist (sponsorship is lost);
  • Force majeure or other emergency conditions (a project’s site or equipment are destroyed or no longer accessible);

  • Project has lost management support (organization doesn’t want to realize it anymore);

  • Sell or rent out any unclaimed project assets to compensate for uncollected income;
  • Evaluate possibility of selling project ideas, concepts or deliverables to competitors;
  • Ensure the team members are fairly compensated and rewarded for their labour;
  • Disband the project team and release borrowed materials and equipment;
  • Reassign people and resources to other tasks, projects and alternate duties;
  • Reintegrate available project results, if any, into other projects or activities of the organization;
  • Consider the project insurance options, if any, to find out how they can compensate for loses;
