Chapter 58: Executing a Project: Big Picture

The project work defined in the project management plan is executed by using the processes in the executing process group. The high level idea of the whole process can be understood by studying the picture below:


As I said earlier, it is up to the project team to determine which of these processes is relevant for the project that is currently being executed. The processes in this group are used to accomplish a three-pronged goal:
• Coordinate people and resources used to perform the project activities
• Integrate and manage the project activities being performed
• Ensure the implementation of the project scope and approved changes

The following list defines the processes shown in the picture above.

Direct and manage project execution - Manage various interfaces in the project execution to complete the project work smoothly in order to produce the project outcome, such as deliverables and objectives.
Acquire project team - Obtain the project team members needed to perform the project work. (You need people to do the work right?)
Develop project team - Improve the competencies of team members and interaction among team members to enhance project performance.
Manage project team - Manage the project team, which includes tracking the performance of team members, providing feedback, resolving issues, and managing changes to improve project performance. (A Well Managed Team is an efficient team.)
Perform quality assurance - Audit the results from the quality control measurements to ensure that the quality requirements are being met.
Distribute information - Make the relevant information about the project, such as project progress, available to the stakeholders according to the communication management plan.
Conduct procurements - Obtain responses from potential sellers in terms of quotes, bids, offers, and proposals for their product or services needed for the project; select sellers; and negotiate written contracts with the selected sellers.
Manage stakeholder expectations - Stay on the same page with the stakeholders by communicating and working with them on their needs and issues.
