Context and Governance
The governance and setting of a project will heavily influence how it is managed. This section will cover topics such as:
•   The difference between project and operational work
•   Programme and portfolio management
•   Project team roles
•   The governance of a project across its life cycle

Concept Phase
It is essential that the need for a project is identified and understood before its viability can then be judged. This may involve:
•   Identifying and managing stakeholders
•   Creating a business case
•   Assessing project success and benefits
•   Procuring resources and contract management

Definition Phase
The definition phase is often where the project manager is most heavily involved and we look at a structured approach for planning the project – both in terms of what needs to be done and also how it will be done.
•   Requirements and scope management
•   Schedule and resource management
•   Budgeting and cost management

Development Phase
Putting the plan into action will require the project manager to undertake many of the following actions.
•   Project control, including cost control through earned value management
•   Manage information and reports
•   Risk and issue management
•   Health and safety
•   Quality management
•   Change control and configuration management

Managing the Team
No project is successful without an engaged and committed team. This requires the project manager to utilise a number of interpersonal skills.
•   Communication
•   Conflict management
•   Build and lead the team

Project Handover and Closure
Formal closure of a project will help ensure that the deliverables are handed over in a structured manner and that the team and the organisation has reviewed and learned from the performance on the project.
