Example Of A Project Management Case Study

Project Management: Real World

 Real life project management processes, just like processes, are comprised of various sequential steps like initiation, planning, implementation, monitoring and closure. Keep in mind that any project is finite in nature, which means it has specific initiation and finishing deadlines.

The key factor, therefore, is to successfully complete the project without any time or cost overruns. Managing projects is indeed a challenge that calls for conceiving a definite strategy and creating a workable methodology apart from problem-solving, communication, and team-building skills. These parameters divide a project into different phases.

Whether planning a family wedding, anticipating the delivery of a new child, or going on a holiday, real life project management is involved to ensure the outcome follows the plan. Wikipedia aptly defines the project management process as “the discipline of planning, organizing and managing resources to bring about the successful completion of specific project goals and objectives. Project management process relies on two activities: planning first, and then doing."1

Study these four PM process examples, which can acquaint you with the phases of project management and why it is necessary to execute a project in a particular manner.

Initiation Examples

MPMMTM includes a suite of examples which help you to initiate projects, by defining the business case, undertaking a feasibility study, completing a project charter, recruiting the project team and setting up a Project Office. The following topics are described in depth, within the Project Initiation Example suite:

Planning Examples

After defining the project and appointing the project team, you're ready to enter the detailed Project Planning phase. This involves creating a suite of planning deliverables to help guide your team through project delivery. The following topics are described in depth, within the Project Planning Example suite:

  • Create a Project Plan
  • Create a Resource Plan
  • Create a Financial Plan

  • Issue a Request for Proposal
  • Create a Supplier Contract
  • Perform a Phase Review

Execution Examples

Execution is the phase within which the deliverables are physically built and presented to the customer for final acceptance. While each deliverable is being constructed, a suite of management processes are undertaken to monitor and control the deliverables being output by the project. These processes help you manage time, cost, quality, change, risks, issues, suppliers, customers and communication. The following project management examples will help you to execute projects efficiently:

  • Perform Time Management
  • Perform Cost Management
  • Perform Quality Management
  • Perform Change Management

  • Perform Communications Management
  • Perform a Phase Review

Closure Examples

Project Closure involves releasing the final deliverables to the customer, handing over project documentation to the business, terminating supplier contracts, releasing project resources and communicating project closure to all project stakeholders. The last remaining step is to undertake a Post Implementation Review, to measure the level of project success and identify any lessons learned for future projects. The following project management examples will help you to complete these closure tasks quickly and efficiently:

  • Perform Project Closure
  • Review Project Completion
