The Project Readiness Checklist is a tool used to assess the status of a project prior to beginning work. It helps to ensure that all necessary steps have been taken and that project goals are achievable. The checklist includes a range of items, such as identifying key stakeholders, developing a timeline and budget, defining project scope and objectives, and assessing resource availability. It also includes steps to manage risk, such as developing contingency plans and identifying potential project risks. The checklist is designed to help project managers to ensure that the project is ready to start, and that all necessary preparations have been made for a successful outcome.
