5 Phases of Project Management Life cycle You Must Know Before You Hire A Project Manager

At the beginning of an architectural project, the planning phase itself can seem overwhelming. There are so many tasks that need to be completed sequentially as part of Project Management. A seasoned project manager will often divide the whole project into phases. Proper architectural planning not only needs efficient management skills but also requires skilled experts who have relevant experience.

Here are five primary phases of project management which will simplify the whole process into a series of logical and manageable steps.

Project Initiation
The first phase is the beginning of the project lifecycle which is known as the project initiation. The feasibility of the project is measured in the first stage of the project. Two evaluation methods to measure the feasibility of the project include business case document and feasibility study.

Project Planning
Once the project passes through the initial feasibility tests, it needs a seamless and airtight plan to guide the whole team. A well-written plan of the project includes proper guidance for obtaining resources, acquiring finances and procuring required materials. Other important factors in project management planning include producing quality outputs, handling risk, creating acceptance, communicating benefits to stakeholders and managing suppliers.

Project Execution
This is the most important phase of the whole process where the actual work planned in the previous phases are implemented. Resources are allocated to the respective departments which are then expected to execute the planned tasks.

Project Monitoring
Project monitoring continues along with the execution. As the whole team implements the project plan, there is a need for strict surveillance in order to ensure quality and timeliness. The monitoring team’s only work is to ensure that the resources are utilised properly, the work is done on time and with quality.

Project Closure
When all the above phases are complete and the project is ready to be delivered to the customer, the communication of project closure is sent across to all the stakeholders.
