During the initiation phase, I start by defining the project scope and identifying the key stakeholders. I also work closely with the team to establish the project goals and objectives and create a project charter that outlines the project's purpose, scope, and success criteria.
Once the project is initiated, the planning phase begins. This involves developing a detailed project plan that includes tasks, timelines, and resources. I also create a communication plan and a risk management plan during this stage.
In the execution phase, the project team starts working on the tasks outlined in the project plan. Regular progress meetings are held to ensure that everyone is on track and any issues are addressed promptly. Collaboration tools are used to keep everyone informed and connected.
The monitoring and controlling phase runs concurrently with the execution phase. In this stage, I track the project's progress against the plan, identify any deviations, and make necessary adjustments to keep the project on track. This includes managing scope creep and addressing any risks that arise.
Finally, in the closure phase, I evaluate the project's performance against the success criteria defined in the project charter, conduct a lessons learned session with the team, and create a project closure report that summarizes the project outcomes and any recommendations for future projects.
