Initiate a project

In this lesson, we will learn that project management methods follow a project life cycle that includes four or more stages including initiation, planning, execution, and evaluation. In this lesson, and over the next few lessons, we will complete the 'Delicious Desserts' project brief to practise each stage of the project management cycle. We will also learn about the critical parth method and practise using it.

Initiate and plan a project

In this lesson, we will discuss the creation of SMART goals (objectives). We will also introduce the concept of integration and iteration of stages within a project. Iteration of stages is particularly relevant if the agile or hybrid method is used, as the success of these methods relies on stages being repeated.
