This is the phase where the project manager will monitored
and controlled factors and activities while the deliverables are being created
by the employees. Factors and Activities that are involved are:
Building deliverables – This is where the actual projects for
the customers are created
Time – Each task will be given an allocated start and
finish date. If the task is taking longer than expected and has a chance to
fall behind the project manager will have to consider:
important to the overall project is this task, is failing to meet the deadline
for this particular task going to result in delaying other tasks distrusting
the overall time the project will take to complete.
o How could
this time be made up; how could the task get back on track that could be help
to make up the time they have lost.
o Is the task
in need of additional help from other so the task meets the deadline it has
been set to achieve.
If necessary, the time for
particular tasks should be adjusted to keep all tasks as close to the deadlines
Cost – The manager has to identify the expenses for
each task, factors that need to be taken into account are the expenses that
each task and how they compare to the planned cost of the tasks on the planned
phase. If the cost of the task is going to end up costing more then what was
planned then the manager has to consider saving in other areas of the project
or can ask for an increase in this area of the budget.
Quality – The project manager needs to keep track of
the quality of the tasks being created, are the deliverables being made to the
required standard set by the plan and that they are to the quality the customers
Change – Any changes proposed to the project manager
that have been voice or written are considered as long as the reasons for the
change and the effect that the change will have on the cost and time on the
project are defined. If the change is to happen the project plan should be
updated as a result and also all changes should be approved with the project
Risks – As the project develops the risks from the
plan should be monitored. While some risk within the plan may not be relevant
anymore new risk could arise, if they do they must be recorded and any steps
taken to reduce or eliminate the risk.
Issues – issues are risk that are not anticipated they
arise unexpectedly some issues that could happen within a work environment are:
power outages, floods, earthquakes, or any other unexpected issue that causes
the project development to come to a holt. A group member oversees resolving
the issue, when resolved the method in which the issue is resolved is record
for any future projects.
Communication – This takes place between all important
members of the project, this includes: project manager, the team under the
management, stakeholders such as clients. Information that must be communicated
between each other include:
projects budget, are they over under or on track
projects deadline completion, have they finished before the deadline did the
deadline need to be increased or on track
o Issues, the
issue that occurred and how they were dealt with
performance, how well the project when overall and anything that would be
change if done again.
