Project Management

Process Design Pattern


When an objective requires a concentrated set of work with specialist skills to make a change or provide for on-going improvements, a Project may be formed to achieve this objective.

A project is a Temporary team that is established and managed for the purpose of achieving the objective and producing the required results.

The project management process may also work with a number of life cycle processes to structure both management and technical stages of development. A typical life cycle would be Product / Service Innovation Process Design Pattern or a Capability Innovation Life Cycle.

This process supports the implementation of the project management capability.
