Looking at the lifecycle of a project, is there a industry standard (not specific to only project management) or a set of best practices of the artifacts that should be created as part of a project?
I am looking at this from the perspective of key stakeholders e.g. business analysts, architects, project managers, operations, support, etc.
For example, from an architectural perspective, this could include conceptual design, high level designs, detailed designs as well as technical designs such as infrastructure, networks, software and the like. These would move through the stages of inception, feasibility, build, deploy and support.

As for my role, i sit across the enterprise architecture practice and am looking at ways to elevate core practices that drive standards and improved practices & processes.
