Please review the material below regarding the PMI method. This is an outline of what was covered in this lesson’s video.
According to PMI, “project management is the application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to a broad range of activities in order to meet the requirements of a particular project.”
Getting started with your project and how to plan in advance.
Project Charter (Conception) – a document that outlines the purpose of the project, the way the project will be structured, and how it will be successfully implemented. It describes the project:
Project Initiation – Examine your project for both its feasibility and value to the organization; an easy project will be useless if it does not benefit the company, and a useful project will just waste resources if you aren’t certain that it’s plausible in the first place.
Scope & Budget
Options for defining goals
Status & Tracking
Quality – Ensuring that the work is up to standard
Forecasts – Based on progress, adjust the plan accordingly and continue to manage expectations
Post Mortem Schedule a “post mortem” – to evaluate what went well in a project and identify project failures. This is especially helpful to understand lessons-learned so that improvements can be made for future projects.
