SessIon objectIves: By end of the session we will be able to Illustrate typIcal phases of a project lIfecycle

• Define and produce specification

• implement the plan
• complete and review
Project lIfecycles
A project may be broken down into stages in a number of different ways. How you break it down is called a project lifecycle. This section describes one way to break a project down; there are other ways that are just as valid.
Define and produce a specification

This stage is about finding out what is actually wanted. It may include recording what is done now, what the customer wants to happen once the new system or procedure is in place and any performance needs. The four main activities of this phase are:
• Interview the customer
• Analyse the customer’s requirements
• Produce the specification
• Business Case

The plan and design stage turns the customer’s requirements into a potential solution with a plan on how to make it happen.

The end result or deliverable of this phase is usually:
•a specification saying what the new system or procedure must do but not how it will do it
•a business case for going ahead with the new system or procedure, giving the potential costs and benefits.
End result of THIS stage

project lifecycle (P1)
Collect information
The project plan requires you to collect information from the stakeholders to check the project is appropriate and will meet the customer needs. You will need to review and summarise that information and present it to the stakeholders.
Key terms
Deliverable – a product or service that a project aims to produce.
Stakeholder – a person or organisation that is actively involved in a project or whose interests the project may affect
Implement the plan
The implementation stage includes:
• build the product or service
• test that the product meets the need
• provide documentation and possibly training
• hand the product over to the customer.
Complete and review
Completion involves the customer and the users
using your product. It includes identifying the actual benefits and costs of building and running the product. It also includes a final project review, in which the stakeholders review how well you did in managing the project and product delivery
