The Implementation of the Project Plan

The next phase of our 5 phase plan on the lifecycle of the project is the implementation, monitoring and, if required , corrective action of the plan. Implementation of a project plan involves taking the defined objectives of the project and the planning phase , and turning the plan into action. As a result, the objectives of the plan are monitored against the current outcomes. The continued success of the project against its time line and objectives will lead more often than not to the success of the project overall. The first important point to note is the assignment of key responsibilities, accountabilities and authorities to the task team, the team that will implement the project. It would also be important for you to note who would be responsible for what parts of the project, and if these people have the ability and authority to be able to do their part within the bigger project and achieve the core objectives of the project. Massively important to this process is the setting of control procedures ( for example, budgets, milestone charts, key point identification charts ) in line with the accountabilities that you have assigned. These control measures can then actively be tracked and become an integrated WIP ( Work in Progress ) mechanism that allows the project manager to follow up on progress and be able to identify and report on and corrective action required, or initiate praise for any positive developments. Key to the process of setting up the controls is to set up intervals where the progress of the implementation is tracked, and what is specifically being reported on .

Examples of Control Measures/Processes that you can put in place to ensure the success of the project will include

  • Milestone Charts
  • Budget Control Charts
  • Identification Charts
  • Surveys
