Project management phases – Do your project step-by-step by following five key phases


Most project management methodologies (PMBOK, Prince2) outline five key project management phases, such as Initiation, Planning, Execution, Monitoring & Control, and Closure. These basic phases create a methodological foundation for managing projects. Often the phases are related to a phase model that determines the key steps to be taken to initiate, plan, execute, control and close project activities. Let’s briefly review each of the phases.

  • Initiation – the key activity of this phase is to create the project charter.
  • Planning – this phase is about creating the plan as well as subsidiary plans for managing costs, time, risks, changes, quality, etc.
  • Execution – this phase is intended for implementing project activities following the plans.
  • Monitoring & Control – the phase focuses on identifying issues and changes of the project and implementing solutions to mitigate the risk of failure.
  • Closure – this final phase is intended for closing project activities and providing customer with desired deliverables.
