This involves: – Understanding the needs of stakeholders. – Planning what needs to be done, when, by whom, and to what standards. – Building and motivating the team. – Coordinating the work of different people. – Monitoring work being done. – Managing any changes to the schedule. – Managing Risks – Delivering successful results.
