Join Bonnie Biafore for an in-depth discussion in this video Overview of the small project management life cycle, part of Project Management Foundations: Small Projects (2013).
Managing small projects can be broken down into five major steps.…In this movie, I'll introduce each of these steps.…Then we'll cover them in detail in the chapters that follow.…With a small project, you might be tempted to dive in and get down to work.…But it pays to take some time to get started right.…Getting started, also known as initiating in project management circles, is about getting…to know what the project is supposed to achieve.…
Identifying or clarifying the project's purpose helps the customer decide whether the project…makes sense, or it might show that another project would be a better choice.…You put what you've learned into a short document called the Project Summary.…Next up in the project management lifecycle is getting organized, otherwise known as planning.…This is where you determine how you're going to do everything it's going to take to get the project done.…You figure out what work must be done, who is going to do it, when they will do it,…how long it's going to take, and how much everything will cost.…
