Phases of a Project Management Process: Delivery


Implementation of the project processes can begin after all details have been determined to a proper scale. This section is most focused on coordinating both talent and resources to achieve the outputs as necessary. Consider using project management software to provide an updated snapshot of scheduling, communication, costs and budget management, documentation and quality control.

As you are scheduling the different stages of the project, remember to include the smallest details: assigning resources, milestones, each task and subtask.

Monitoring and Controlling

As the project is underway, it is essential to ensure that each process is functioning optimally. One of the key benefits of using Organizational Project Management is that weaknesses and problems can be determined earlier, allowing for inefficiencies to be corrected. To receive the optimal results for the project, constant monitoring is necessary to ensure the time spent on this project is optimized and efficient.

Project Presentation

Before the project is complete, provide a preview of the results to the client or department the project is for. Team communication should be at its peak at this time to make sure that all the components are sufficiently brought together. During the presentation phase, a detail of the steps taken and any deliverables should be available to the client, who will then have the opportunity to request changes or revisions, if necessary.


To avoid the unnecessary consumption of resources, a project must be closed properly. This step involves reallocating project teams and receiving final approval from the customer. During this phase, make sure that all work and time is accounted for, as well as all documents made available. This will not only provide a succinct timeline of project events, but can also serve as a foundation for other projects in the future.
