Project Phase Definitions

The following provides a brief definition of each of the five project phases that are an integral part of the PMMG.

Initiating Phase Obtaining formal approval for the project; the project charter is issued.

Planning Phase Determining the project requirements, customer expectations, objectives, and benefits and creating the project baseline plan.

Executing Phase The work is done according to the plan to meet deliverable requirements. Status is tracked and reported. Scope control is carefully monitored in this phase of the project.

Controlling Processes Processes are established to identify and resolve issues, and manage changes that affect project, cost, timing, and quality. A process to measure and record project metrics is also established and implemented in the executing phase of the project.

Closing Phase Contracts are closed and final customer approval is obtained for the end deliverable. Post project evaluations are reviewed and lessons learned are documented.
