Project Execution and Control Phase

Project Execution and Control Phase follows the Project Planning Phase and ideally starts once the Project Plan has been approved and baselined. Project Execution is characterized by the actual work on the tasks planned and project Control involves the comparison of the actual performance with the planned performance and taking appropriate corrective action to get the desired output.

During this phase, Project Team is responsible for the following activities:

  • Team Members execute the tasks as planned by the Project Manager.
  • Project Manager is responsible for performance measurement which includes finding variances between planned and actual work, cost and schedule.
  • Project manager is responsible for providing Project Status Report to all key stakeholders to provide visibility.
  • All Project Key stakeholders are responsible for the review of the metrices and variances.
  • All Project Key stakeholders are responsible for taking necessary action of the variances thus determined so as to complet the project within time and budget.

The basic processes of the Project Execution and Control can be:

  • Project Plan Execution.
  • Review of Metrics and Status Reports.
  • Change Control Process. This defines the procedures to handle the changes that are introduced
  • during Project Execution and Control.

The facilitating processes during Project Execution and Control can be:

  • Quality Assurance and Quality Control.
  • Performance Monitoring.
  • Information Distribution or Status Reporting.
  • Project Administration.
  • Risk Monitoring and Control.
  • Scope Control.
  • Schedule and Cost Control.
  • Contract Administration.

Project Execution and Control Phase has a direct correlation to project progress and stakeholder's expectations. Even the minor issues, if unnoticed, can cause major impact on cost, schedule and risk and deviate the project from the Project Plan, thus emphasizing the importance for the Project Execution and Control Phase.
