Project management process


Appropriate implementation of project management process is the guarantee that deliverables of your project will be produced and expectations of stakeholders will be met. A brief description of PM framework is given in the following below overview. By reading this overview , you will gain an understanding of the process, its steps and required software.

The process can be managed by using common model that shows the steps required for taking a project through its life-cycle. These steps are listed below:

  • Conceptualization – when an idea for your new project is developed and all people and organizations which are going to participate in the project are involved in project initiating activities. At this phase an initial outline is due to be developed.
  • Goals and objectives – when your manager communicates with stakeholders (sponsors and customers) to identify their expectations as to deliverables, and then to set goals and objectives. The manager prepares a presentation to show stakeholders what goals and objectives have been set.
  • Team assembling – when the project manager decides on members of your team and assigns initial roles and responsibilities. The project manager in cooperation with the project team identifies requirements as to developing and delivering the product. Project requirements will be added in initial PM documentation .
  • Developing Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) – at this phase, the project manager develops a WBS that is consistent with the project scope and requirements.
  • Plan – when your project manager develops a template that will be used to specify main project planning activities and create a project plan.
  • Resource management – when the manager in cooperation with groups identifies critical human and financial resources required for delivering the final product.
  • Start – when your project has been actually started and all activities are undertaken according to the project plan developed previously.
  • Analyzing and tracking – when all information on the project is gathered and then analyzed by the project manager to ensure that project management process interactions and activities are undertaken as expected.
