Six Stages of the Project Management Process

July 27, 2009

As defined in my project management fundamentals course, the six stages of the project management process (aka the project management lifecycle) are:

  1. DEFINE
  2. PLAN
  3. EXECUTE –> MONITOR –> ADJUST     (loop)
  4. COMPLETE
  5. EVALUATE
  6. CELEBRATE

It seems that most project stages / lifecycles are very close to this definition.

One bit of wisdom from the instructor:  Plans are worthless – planning is essential.
