Here in the project manager set the direction, tone and foundation of the project.  Stakeholder are identified and committed in writing to the follow agreed upon guidelines and process execution procedures from the customer and other major stakeholders.

Key elements for a successful initiating process are leadership, organization and effective planning.  The Project Management Book of Knowledge (PMBOK guide) addresses these in two knowledge areas.
