1) Introduction:
1.1 The Value of Project Management in organizations
* Allows for excellent organization and tracking
* Better control and use of resources
* Reduces complexity of inter-related tasks
* Allows measurement of outcome versus plans
* Early identification of problems and quick correction Based on the Project Management Institute’s Project Management Body of Knowledge: PMBOK, the nine knowledge areas of Project management are: Scope, Time, Cost, Risk, Quality, Procurement, Communications, Human Resources, Integration. A project is a temporary endeavor undertaken to create a unique product or service. - A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK™), Project Management Institute, 2003 * One time

* Specific resources utilized

* Specific Deliverables
The Triple Constraint of Projects:

1.2 Project life cycle:
1. At the beginning of Project Initiation, a Project Manager is assigned. The Project Manager works with the Project Sponsor to identify the necessary resources and team members needed to further develop the key project parameters – Cost, Scope, Time, and Quality.

2. Project Planning builds on the work done in Project Initiation, refining and augmenting (Cost, Scope, Time &Quality) and Project Plan deliverables. Usually, additional members join the Project Team, and they assist the Project Manager in further elaborating the details of the Cost, Scope, Schedule and Quality..

3. Project Execution and Control is where most of the resources are applied/expended on the project. A significant number of team members will join the project at the beginning of this phase. The primary task of the Project Manager during Project Execution and Control is to enable the Project Team to execute the tasks on the defined Project Schedule and develop the product or service the project is expected to deliver.

4. In Project Closeout, the Project Team assesses the outcome of the project, as well as the performance of the Project Team and the Performing Organization. The purpose of this feedback is to get lessons learned and better efficiency. The following diagram illustrates every phase in the project lifecycle:

Any project will undergo four standard phases of completion: the definition & initiation, the planning, the execution and the closing. Execution consumes majority of project budget and time (about 60%) .
