In Smartideas Inc projects are typically broken down into phases. Each phase outlines the work that needs to be done and who is involved. Generally, for each phase to be considered complete, specific deliverables are completed and handed off. We also implement fast tracking, which is when phases are overlapped.
A lifecycle defines the beginning and end of the project; it represents all of the phases together. When defining the project’s life cycle, the first phase is noted as Step 0. It usually captures the visioning and conceptualizing of the project.

We schedule the project because schedules are an important part of project management because they help us measure our progress as the project moves along.

It defines what needs to be done and who is the point of contact responsible for the work.
