Project Life Cycle

Any planned project consists of different steps/phases. The steps/phases in a project is known and referred to as the life cycle of the Project.

The first phase of a project is the Defining / Initiation Phase. This is the phase where the idea for the project is born and defined. During this phase the project objectives are determined. Feasibility is checked and estimated time frames for the project is identified. This phase is the beginning of the project and needs to be clearly defines to ensure that all stakeholders understand the end goal.
