Project Delivery Cycle

Projects enter the Project Delivery Cycle after they are accepted by the business and are allocated a budget. The cycle lasts for the duration of the project and includes all the activities that must be completed to successfully complete the project deliverables.  This is the phase that represents 90-95% of the project and where plans can quickly get off track. It is a ‘stressful’ time when all of the project execution issues and bottlenecks must be solved to avoid compromising the project end goals. Proactive management of the Project Delivery Cycle is paramount to ensuring the project delivers customer satisfaction and business return to guarantee a successful outcome for the project.  Learn effective tools and techniques to execute and control project direction throughout this phase of the project life cycle. Understand the importance of performing tasks to schedule dates, following a routine task update process to keep the plan current, and your responsibility to prepare for and contribute to project reviews.
