• Directing and managing the project execution Once the project management plan has been created, the project manager and the project team can implement the plan. Directing and managing the project plan creates the project deliverables for the project or phase. Corrective actions, preventive actions, and defect repair all happen through directing and managing the project execution.

• Monitoring and controlling the project This process group starts with the project's conception and finishes with the project completion. Its goal is to make certain that the project stays on track and finishes according to the project plan. Measurements for project performance, time, cost, and quality are implemented. If there are variances, responses to these will happen through preventive, corrective, or defect repair actions.

• Managing integrated change control Changes can kill a project. Change requests must be documented and sent through a formal change control system to determine their worthiness for implementation. Integrated change control manages changes across the entire project. Change requests are evaluated and considered for impacts on risk, costs, schedule, and scope. Not all change requests are approved—but all change requests must be documented.

• Closing the project Projects and phases are closed. Administrative closure confirms that all of the needed processes for each process group have been completed. Administrative closure also gathers all project records for archival purposes, including documentation of the project's success or failure. Contracts, when used, must also be closed after inspection of the contract deliverables. Contracts are always closed according to the agreed-upon terms.
