Why is important?
Projects are activities that are set to be done in a specific moment, to achieve a certain goal. Applicating knowledge, tools, skills, and techniques will make the project evolve and finally create a product, a service, or a specific pre-settled result.
Which are the phases?
Initiation: concept presentation. Who, how, to whom, at what time, how much? All of these questions are part of the first phase of project management.
Planning: creating schedules, timing, costs, resources, teams, getting approvals, and defining methodology is part of this second phase. Analyzing and considering risks like technological, market, financial or organizational risks.
Production or execution: Project execution, materializing, and applicating the project in the organization.
Monitoring or controlling: monitor project execution, see what is functioning and what it is not. Identify those that are not working, resolve problems. Consider feedback and be flexible to adapt to a new environment.
Closing: complete the job, close the project and evaluate outcomes.
