It might seem daunting when you realize that, as a project manager, you're responsible for such a tremendous balancing act. However, this responsibility can be broken down into four manageable processes:
1 Initiating and planning the project
2 Executing the project
3 Controlling the project
Most of the chapters in this book are structured with these four processes in mind. For each process, you use Microsoft Project in specific ways. There are also standard project management practices related to planning, executing, controlling, and closing the project. Throughout this book, the Microsoft Project procedures and project management practices are described in the context of the relevant project process.
