The objective of this case study was to illustrate how project management processes are used in a real life project.
PMI’s PMBOk provides us with an extensive description of project management processes. A case study is a good way to illustrate how project management processes are applied to a real life project.
First of all thanks to all of you have contributed to this case study in one way or the other. Thank you to all who have commented. Of course you can still comment on the case.
A special thank you to the Public Utility of Aruba for allowing me to use of their projects for this case study.
Looking back at the past parts of this case study we see that we have used the twenty three of the forty two processes in this case study. These twenty three processes were used throughout the project life cycle as follows:
- Initiation phase: 2
- Planning phase: 13
- Execution phase 6
- Closing phase: 2
Note that the most processes were used during the planning phase. That is usually the case with a properly planned project. The Planning Process Group is also the largest of the five process groups. See the related post on process groups below.
