Question. 2. Elaborate five project life cycle phases.

Answer: Project management broadly refers to the process and related activities of planning, organizing and controlling resources to achieve specific goals. Projects are usually constrained by factors such as scope, budget and time, requiring the project management function to optimize the allocation of resources and properly integrate them to overcome these constraints and meet predefined objectives. Managing project activities can be seen as a sequence of steps to be completed, in line with the five phases that define the project life cycle.

1.       Initiation: Project initiation starts the project life cycle and involves assembling a team headed by a project manager and providing an overview of the project. The overview typically includes defining the reason for the project, business goals and the strategy to achieve the desired results. In addition, a preliminary scope, budget proposal, milestones and a completion date are given.

Question. 3. Define the determination of the Critical Path

Answer: Critical Path is a term from the field of project management describing a set of tools and a methodology.

The technical definition of the critical path in a sequence of networked work packages is the path with the least amount of slack. In practical terms, this path is the sequence of events that if any are delayed, will delay the entire project. And in even simpler terms, the critical path is the sequence of tasks that will take the longest to complete to deliver the project.



ASSIGNMENT SET-2


Question. 1. Illustrate strategies to control the project risk.

Question. 3. What is Project Performance Evaluation? Elaborate types of project performance evaluation.

Answer: In order for businesses to successfully initiate, develop and complete projects, they need to recruit, hire and train people with solid project management skills. The business world is speeding up and product lifecycles are much shorter. This is forcing organizations to start new projects at an increasing rate. However, as projects become more complex, project failures, delays, and missed deadlines are becoming increasingly common.

One of the main factors leading to the increasing complexity of projects is the rise of globalization. It is a challenging task for organizations to operate and coordinate projects in different countries around the world due to differences in time
