Process of Managing Projects

During the initiation phase, meetings are held to define the project scope, objectives, and requirements upfront, typically through a comprehensive project brief. Detailed planning occurs in the early stages, including creating Gantt charts to visualize the project timeline and dependencies.

Design and development occur concurrently, with continuous collaboration and adjustment throughout the process. Execution is iterative through short sprints, with continuous testing and integration. There is continuous monitoring through daily stand-up meetings and regular sprint reviews, ensuring quick adaptation to changes.

Closing is an ongoing process, with regular releases and the option to adapt and continue development based on feedback.

Example Tasks and Tools

Kanban Board

The use of a Kanban Board in Microsoft Teams using Tasks is a user-friendly way to show the current workflow of a project. I assign project tasks as needed using internal contacts, and automate parts of the task/planner using Flows and Approvals.


Gannt Chart

A Gantt chart is a project management tool that shows the duration of tasks on a visual project schedule. This project task list is shown using Monday. The Gannt Chart associated is on the bottom right hand corner, visualizing the dependencies and timeline. I use Gannt Charts to show an overall view of a project, the task lists, dependencies, and deadlines. This allows a birds-eye view of the project as a whole. 


Smart Strategy, Strong Results

I measure success using the following metrics:

  • cost performance (actual cost [money spent] against budgeted cost [in the initial budget],
  • project progress (percentage of work performed, project milestones completed, or actual time spent on the project so far),
  • financial profit (return on investment),
  • quality metrics (how well the output met the customer expectations), and
  • stakeholder satisfaction (customer survey results or an employee satisfaction index).
