Topic 1 What is the Implementation Phase?

The implementation (or execution) phase is where the real work of the project takes place and where most of the time, budget and workforce are drawn into the project. The deliverables exist to ensure that the requirements of the project are met.

The project implementation is about managing the resources to deliver the products or deliverables of the project. The major concern is to follow the project plan and to monitor the work done, ensuring this way that the delivery is:

  • According to schedule
  • Within the budget line
  • In accordance with the quality standards

The project takes shape during the implementation phase. This phase involves the development of the concrete project result. During this phase, the project becomes visible to external individuals and entities. The implementation phase is the content creation phase, and therefore, it is important to maintain the momentum. During this phase, the project team accomplishes the work defined in the project plan and makes the necessary adjustments whenever any of the project factors change.
