Week 1: Initiation and Planning · Lesson 3 ·
The phases, or steps, of successful project management are (spoilers) initiation, planning, execution, control, and closure. In this lesson, we dive into what that means.
Project management fits neatly into 5 Phases.
Initiation - Pre-planning phase conceptual phase: Should we do this? Can we do this? Is it possible?
Planning - Putting together the logistics of actually carrying out a feasible project.
Execution - The "doing" part of doing a project.
Control - Also known as monitoring, in this part you as a PM make sure everything goes according to your cunning plan.
Closure - Exactly what it sounds like and exactly as necessary as you think.
