Project Execution project execution
This phase involves the execution of each activity and task listed in the Project Plan. While the activities and tasks are being executed, a series of management processes are undertaken to monitor and control the deliverables being output by the project. This includes the identification of changes, risks and issues, the review of deliverable quality and the measurement of each deliverable being produced against the acceptance criteria. Once all of the deliverables have been produced and the customer has accepted the final solution, the project is ready for closure.

The Execution phase is typically the longest phase of the project (in terms of duration). It is the phase within which the deliverables are physically constructed and presented to the customer for acceptance. To ensure that the customer’s requirements are met, the Project Manager monitors and controls the activities, resources and expenditure required to build each deliverable throughout the execution phase.

A number of management processes are also undertaken to ensure that the project proceeds as planned. The execution phase and applicable activities are as follows:

Project Closure

Project Closure involves releasing the final deliverables to the customer, handing over project documentation, terminating supplier contracts, releasing project resources and communicating the closure of the project to all stakeholders. The last remaining step is to undertake a Post Implementation Review to quantify the overall success of the project and list any lessons learnt for future projects.
The following sections provide a more detailed description of each phase and list document templates which provide the Project Manager with guidance on how to complete each phase successfully.
