Quote from Technical Project Management:
Think of this as the winding down phase. Tasks, activities, and milestones are almost all completed. The project is officially coming to an end...maybe there are some tasks still being performed to ensure that everything is running accordingly, but for the most part the project is coming to a close. This will usually be a fairly low resource constraint for you. You will be updating any necessary project materials and making sure that the deliverable match the Charter that you defined this project by. This is also where resources will go back to their usual daily activities as was normal before your project began.
There are lots of ways in which you can adjust the plan in order to get the project back on track (rearrange the order of tasks, assign tasks in parallel if the variation is small, or add more staff to the project or reduce the scope if the variation is very large).
In my opinion, the planning stage provides the project manager with the ideal opportunity to develop team buy-in. As mentioned above, this is often best done by engaging the team members very early within the planning process via collaboration activities. This can be a great strategy! Have the team involved with estimating the costs and schedule they're going to, in the long run, be responsible for. You would be amazed how highly effective this is - I have experienced it's benefit frequently. It's remarkable how hard the team will continue to work towards reaching their "own" obligation instead of a due date that has been handed down. It's a significant difference - utilize the potential of this in your favor. If you incorporate the team in the development of the project budget and schedule you'll be light years ahead.
All projects are designed for a specific period of time and the process of project closure is an important aspect of project management. The purpose of a formal close down to the project is to address all issues generated by the project, to release staff from the project and go through a 'lessons learn' exercise.
