Streamline the project management process

According to the Project Management Institute, project management processes fall into five categories:

  • Initiating. The initiating process is the first phase of project management which establishes an objective. "This is when managers meet and decide what information they need from the project. A small company may have multiple objectives for a project," a Chron article explains.
  • Planning. This phase of project management involves devising a plan to help guide your team. Having a plan in place before beginning a project will help your team better manage their time, risk, unexpected changes, work quality and cost. 
  • Executing. As the name suggests, the executing phase is when the tasks described in the planning and initiating phase are executed.
  • Monitoring and controlling. During this phase of project management, the overall performance and progression of the project is measured and key performance indicators (KPIs) are calculated.
  • Closing. The closing phase is the completion of the project and involves the transfer of deliverables, analyzing the overall project, reassigning resources and finalizing documentation.
