What is Project Onboarding?

Project onboarding is the process of gathering the right people and the right resources to make sure a new project is completed on time, on budget and within scope.

It’s a time to define why the project is important, who the stakeholders are, and which people on the team are responsible for what tasks/ stories. The project manager establishes due dates, deliverables and requirements.

Project managers often introduce new processes and tools during the onboarding period. For example, an IT contractor might need to learn about their client’s legacy system before committing to a third-party software implementation.

Further, teams often expand and contract with new projects depending on the resources needed to get it done.

All project management methodologies, from critical chain to Scrum, require project managers to introduce their team to the project in some way.

A project kick off meeting is the first meeting with the project team and the client of the project where applicable. This meeting is the time to establish common goals and the purpose of the project.

Starting a project without a kick off meeting is like setting off on a trip without any concrete plan.

As the first meeting between the project team members and possibly the client or sponsor, the project kick off is the best time to set expectations. Usually, the kick off takes place after the statement of work or project poster has been finalized and all parties are ready to go.

Your kick off is an opportunity to orient the team to the work at hand, decide how everyone will work together, and establish common project goals and check-ins. Think about discussing things like how you’ll communicate, how often you’ll meet, what the timeline is, and what could slow the project down (and how to avoid that).
