Going Through A Phase (Of Project Management)

Week 1: Initiation and Planning · Lesson 3 · 2 minutes

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.
