• Unit 5: Executing Projects

    Project execution is where the work of the project is done. When the scope of work is clearly defined, the resources needed are gathered, and the project team is assembled, the tasks needed to complete the project can begin. It's important to note that while the project phases may seem to follow in a linear manner, project planning, execution, monitoring, and controlling actually may overlap at various times throughout the project. It is common for a project manager to be working on the procurement plan or quality plan after project execution begins. During project execution, the project manager carefully works to meet stakeholder expectations while keeping the project team functioning at full capacity. Here, it is important to understand the dynamics that make up a high-functioning team. This may include resolving conflicts and providing leadership. Additionally, the project manager may be finalizing the risk, procurement, and quality plans for the project.

    Completing this unit should take you approximately 9 hours.
