How many phases does the Project Management Model introduced have?

Project Management Model

There are four phases in a project timeline and each phase is separated by milestones. When arriving at such milestones, the projects’ performance is assessed and important decisions are made by the project manager. The completion of each milestones will be shown by the completion of deliverables.  

Not only will the project manager assess the performance of the project at each phase, but will also review and assess the overall project to find out if it still viable. If any mistakes or errors have been made, these assessments give the project manager the opportunity to correct these.

Between some of the phases, additional steps are incorporated if needed. An example would be separating the execution phase into commissioning and execution phase.

All of the above mentioned phases are interdependent which means that a vision is guiding the complete project. The vision and goal is set in the initiation phase. Without adequate and accurate planning, the project will most likely fail.

Without people, a project will not result in deliverables. In order for a project to run smoothly and become a success, both internal and external stakeholders are included. Any project manager therefore needs to identify and understand the stakeholders from the get-go. Their expectations need to me managed and the stakeholders need to remain up to date at all times. This will lessen the risk of any potential issues (Project Management Institute, page 31).
