- Initiation Phase – Requirements gathering, sponsor support, charge creation, etc.
- Planning Phase – Development of an overall plan on which the sponsor, developers, and other stakeholders agree (timelines, responsibilities, etc.).
- Development/Execution Phase – Active project work is tracked, reported, communicated, managed for risk, etc.
- Closure – Celebration of activity, review of lessons learned, reporting.
