Project Execution

The following are the important themes you must remember from the PMI Perspective regarding the Project Execution Phase.

1. The project manager is ultimately responsible for the Project Execution
2. The Project Manager is ultimately responsible for the quality of the project.
3. The project team should solve its own problems and resolve its own issues whenever possible.
4. Team development occurs throughout the entire project lifecycle.
5. The five types of power that are available to a project manager are legitimate, coercive, reward, expert, and referent. Coercive or Punishment power should be used rarely and should never be used in public. If you are punishing someone for bad behavior or performance, make sure it is one on one in your cabin and not in a public place
6. The five conflict-resolution techniques are confronting (preferred method), compromising, withdrawal, smoothing, and forcing.
7. The performance evaluation process of an individual should include everyone who has had significant interaction with that individual.
8. Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs, in order, is physical, safety and security, social, self-esteem, and self-actualization.
9. Herzberg's Hygiene Theory suggests that pay is not as motivating as work satisfaction, learning new skills, and promotions, and it suggests that relationships only prevent job dissatisfaction; they do not motivate.
10. A McGregor Theory X Manager micromanages his team’s work and does not trust them. A Theory Y Manager trusts his team and expects them to be responsible for their work and motivates them to be successful.
