•    plan quality
•    plan a project
•    refine the business case and risks

•    authorising initiation
•    authorising a project
•    authorising a stage or exception plan
•    giving ad hoc direction
•    confirming project closure

Controlling a stage – PRINCE2 methodology recommends to breakdown the projects into stages and the sub-processes guide how to control each individual stage as well as speak about techniques how some project issues to shoot up to the project board. The key performances in this process include to:
•    authorise work package
•    assess progress
•    capture and study project issues
•    check status of the stage
•    report emphasized points
•    take counteractive actions
•    escalate project issues
•    receive completed work package

Managing stage boundaries – This stage guides what should be done towards the end of the stage and how to report the end of the stage. The main activities in this stage include to:
•    plan a stage
•    update a project plan
•    update a project business case

•    agree to a work package
•    implement a work package
