Programme Modules

Project Processes

The first step in the process. This is where the project’s value and feasibility are measured; appropriate resources are allocated; and required permissions are put in place.

A business case is created and this document justifies the need for the project, and it includes an estimate of potential benefits. The fundamental project documents are created that form the basis of planning; and prop up the business case.


The planning process includes all project knowledge areas, appropriate organisational and technical infrastructures and gives guidance for obtaining resources, acquiring financing and procuring required materials.   

The project plan gives the team direction for producing quality outputs, handling risk, creating acceptance criteria, communicating benefits to stakeholders and managing suppliers.

The aim is to ensure that the objectives of the project are achieved in the most appropriate way. 


Executing  is all about building deliverables that satisfy the project requirements - this is achieved by allocating resources and keeping team members focused on their assigned tasks.   

The work and efforts of the team during the execution phase relies heavily on the planning phase. 

Monitoring and Controlling

The monitoring and controlling phase contains project activities that are managed continuously in a project from start to finish. From initiating to planning to executing and finally closing, these activities are designed to ensure that project deliverables meet the specifications and satisfy customer requirements.


The closing process manages the formal sign-off on deliverables, and creates archives and historical data - all of which serve as valuable inputs into any future projects or change initiatives.       

Project management when broken down into these five distinct process groups can help your team manage even the most complex projects and use time and resources more effectively and efficiently.
