How to be Successful with your project management

There are several factor that can secure a successful project management.

Join us and Learn how to tackle all the important factor in successful project management

1. The initiation Process

The most important process involving the roles assign for project manager and team member, all the accountability and responsibilities. 
This process involves all the important project planning including:

  • Defining project needs, functional and technical requirements.
  • Defining measurable objectives to meet project requirements (scoping).
  • Initial cost estimates (order-of-magnitude/topdown/budget estimation techniques).
  • Project feasibility studies (financial), e.g. Present Value, Net Present Value, Payback, Return On Investment.

2. The Planning Process

The project plan is the core of your project and needs to involve all of the stakeholders and have their buy-in. The project plan is a living document that provides direction and must be examined and changed over the project’s lifespan. he project plan contains the detailed planning documents and should include:

  • performance measures—where are you starting, where do you want to go, what milestones need to be achieved along the way, and what are your quality standards?
  • process changes that need to take place—who and what will these changes affect?
  • risks—how they will be addressed if they arise?
  • resources—how are resources obtained and maintained; in the case of human resources, how will they be rewarded?
  • education and communication needs—everyone involved in the project needs to know what is expected of them and how communication takes place
  • a project time line delineated with milestones (a downfall of many unsuccessful projects is that the timeline becomes the project plan; the time lineis only a component of a project plan)
  • champions within the organization—who can provide guidance and support when needed?

3. The Execution Process

During the execution process, always updates with the projects progress.
  • Track the project schedule progress using Gantt Chart.
  • Respond to project risk
  • Work – around risk responses
  • Risk Monitoring
  • Verifying project scope deliverables and stage sign - offs

4. The Closeout Process

You did it; you reached your goal. The problem defined in Step 1 is solved and you are ready to close the project. During this step your responsibilities are to:
  • Administrative close-out checklist
  • Project books, post-mortem, documenting lessons learned, archiving project documents,
  • Disbanding, rewarding and thanking the team.
  • Contract close-out administration checklist
