Introduction

After you have carefully planned your project, you will be ready to start the project execution phase. The execution phase is typically the longest phase of the project. It is the phase within which the deliverables are physically built and presented to the customer for acceptance. To ensure that the customer's requirements are met, the project manager monitors and controls the production of each deliverable by executing a suite of management processes. After the deliverables have been physically constructed and accepted by the customer, a phase review is carried out to determine whether the project is complete and ready for closure. Figure 4.1 shows the activities undertaken during the project execution phase.

To successfully deliver the project on time, within budget and to specification you need to fully implement each of the activities listed in this section. Even though the management processes listed may seem obvious, it is extremely important that you implement each process in its entirety and that you communicate the process clearly to your project team. A large percentage of projects worldwide have failed because of a lack of formalization of these simple, yet critical project management processes.
