Initiation 1
1 Lecture 04:52

The first phase of project management is initiation. This is where the project starts to take shape. Stakeholders and team members work together to identify wants and needs, and then the project team creates a plan to accomplish the objectives with the time and budget available. This module will explore the first part of that process: identifying what success will look like for your particular project.

Once you have an idea of who your stakeholders are and what the project will achieve, it’s time to put it all in writing. This module will look at four key project documents: the statement of work, the project requirements document, the project planning worksheet, and the project charter.

Planning 1
1 Lecture 04:58

Congratulations! With the completion of the SOW, planning worksheet, and project charter, the initiation phase is complete. Now it’s time to plan the nuts and bolts of your project.

When building your plan, remember:

·Everything in the plan is a prediction.

·The only fact that you know for certain is that your plan is definitely not 100% right.

·Contingency needs to be built in to cope with the uncertainty.
