The Project Planning Stage

The Project Planning Stage


  • Once you've initiated the project and gather all relevant information, you'll then begin planning your project. 
  • The planning stage depends on the size of your project, how much information you have to organize and how large your team is. 
  • The end result of planning is a clear project plan or schedule, from which everyone will follow their assigned tasks. 
  • Different tools, techniques, and planning programs may be used by the project manager for planning the project implementation

The planning process: 

  • Identifies specific work to be performed and the goals that define the project 
  • Provides documented estimates regarding schedule, resources, and cost for planning, tracking, and controlling the project 
  • Obtains organizational commitments that are planned, documented, and agreed upon
  • Continues the development and documentation of project alternatives, assumptions, and constraints 
  • Establishes a baseline of the plan from which the project will be managed

What is Project Management Plan? 

A project plan, according to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK), is:
"a formal, approved document used to guide both project execution and project control. The primary uses of the project plan are to document planning assumptions and decisions, facilitate communication among stakeholders, and document approved scope, cost, and schedule baselines. A project plan may be summarized or detailed."
