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 Issue Management
  • Perform Procurement Management
  • Perform Acceptance 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
