Abstract

The project request is the basis on which decisions about a project agreement will be made. The term “project agreement” reflects an organisation’s working behaviour. In the same way as a request for proposal is discussed and negotiated with an external customer, the internal responsible person agrees with the project manager what he can do to help achieve the company’s goals. It is the incoming project manager’s task to formulate the project request, which will be used as the basis for the project agreement. He does this through dialog with the project owner. As the person responsible for the project process, the project manager knows which points need to be discussed. He should write down the project owner’s answers in order to ensure that both partners in the contract have the same understanding. In signing the document, the project owner confirms that the project manager has understood things correctly. He then gives a green light, normally for a project phase. The agreement is then in place.
