response 1 for Nehl Lodhi:
Projects is a type of temporary endeavor that will used for the
creation of products, services in a unique mode. Projects are
mainly focused on customers, they help to develop solution for
customers problems and resolve for goal clearance. Projects will
be always in a complex mode there are mainly used for
processing only once in a lifetime. Projects have some
limitations that may be regarding budget, schedule and
resources. There will be some characteristics involved in each
project, some of the regular characters that seen in most of the
projects are. Projects are helping to provide a philosophy and
they also maintain some strategy for changing management.
They will be with ad hoc endeavors which will be working with
clear life cycle(Dennis Lock, 2007).
Projects are acting as building blocks for both designing and
execution process of organization. The main advantage of
project will be they act as main reason for getting new products
with much more improved services and organization processes
even. Management of change is possible only understanding
both philosophy and strategy of project that is involved in it.
Both for the software and hardware projects success rate will be
very low, failure rate will be approximately 65%. Technology
based projects and programs are also not getting good profit
rate, they are getting almost 30% of success rate which will be
very low comparatively(Joseph Phillips, 2003). Project plays a
main role in product, services improvement, it also helps to
shorten life cycles of product. Launching windows is possible
with the project management. Complex and technical products
are increasing highly by project implementation.
Project life cycle contains different stages involved in
development of project, these will be explained into four
distinct phases: conceptualization, planning, execution,
termination. All these phases are very essential for project
development, each phase has different working process that
combinedly helps to reach their goal. There are some criteria
that need to be fulfilled by the projects to get successful IT
project finally, system quality needs to be high, information
should maintain high quality, user satisfaction, impact on other
individuals, impact on organizations. Here we got to know
important details of project that includes with execution
process, project management, time period etc. to complete the
project successfully(Martin Stevens, 2002).

Response 2 for Mounika Vasireddy:
The important topics that the authors discussed in chapter 1 are
why project management is important and key determinants of
project’s success. Every organization has strategic goals and
projects helps in achieving these goals. Managing projects is a
difficult task and need a deeper understanding of project
planning, scheduling, tracking, and communicating results. And
project management helps in aligning the project goals with the
organization’s strategic goals by ensuring to deliver right things
that increases the organizational value. Therefore, it is
important to effectively manage projects for organizational
sustainability in this highly competitive environment.
The main goal of project management is to ensure all projects
are being implemented according to established project
management policies and procedures, develop capabilities, and
continuously improving the project outcomes through lessons
learned. Project management will provide a oversight of how
the projects can be handled effectively and increase value
(Antonio & Ludo, 2018). Without project management, there
will be no direction for the teams to work on the project
because there is no defined project plan. The team members will
be under lot of pressure in understanding the objectives and
completing different tasks. The project will be doomed and will
not meet the established deadlines and deliverables
expectations. Effective project management sets the
expectations and help team members focus on the goals and
complete the project without any confusion or chaos. With
technical advancements, many organizations started using
project management software that can help tackle complex
projects. My organization is currently using Clarizen, which is a
project management software which helps us in documenting
user requirements, organize tasks, manage resources, costs,
deliverables, and controlling and monitoring project progress.
At the same time, there should also be a scientific approach in
managing the tasks and achieving objectives by balancing the
demands of the stakeholders ensuring that the purpose is
achieved. By using the project management methods defined in
PMBOK guidelines, organizations can ensure that projects are
being implemented as per established procedures and policies.
Many factors influence project performance that will make the
project successful or failure. According to the textbook, the
main determinants of project success are time, budget, quality
and project performance. An organization can achieve goals
based on project performance. It is important to continuously
monitor project performance based on established or approved
timelines, budget, scope and quality. Project can be successful
if delivered on time, budget, within scope, and stakeholder
satisfaction. All projects are often based on 3 different and
important constraints- time, budget, and quality. A change in
one of these constraints will automatically impact other two.
There is often trade-off between these constraints in order to
manage stakeholder requirements and achieve project success.
Project constraints always occur, and project management will
help deal with them strategically by carefully reviewing the
changes by weighing on the impact that they would have.
Certain changes can be made to the project plan based on the
evaluation thereby controlling budget or timeline overruns. Poor
planning and monitoring may often result in the budget overruns
and meeting project deadlines. By using these concepts, I will
be able to manage my testing projects taking into consideration
all key factors will help the project manager to implement
projects without impacting the success of the project.

Responses: response 1 for Nehl Lodhi: Projects is a type of temporary endeavor that will used for the creation of products, services in a unique mode. Projects are mainly focused on customers, they help to develop solution for customers problems and resolve for goal clearance. Projects will be always in a complex mode there are mainly used for processing only once in a lifetime. Projects have some limitations that may be regarding budget, schedule and resources. There will be some characteristics involved in each project, some of the regular characters that seen in most of the
  • 2. projects are. Projects are helping to provide a philosophy and they also maintain some strategy for changing management. They will be with ad hoc endeavors which will be working with clear life cycle(Dennis Lock, 2007). Projects are acting as building blocks for both designing and execution process of organization. The main advantage of project will be they act as main reason for getting new products with much more improved services and organization processes even. Management of change is possible only understanding both philosophy and strategy of project that is involved in it. Both for the software and hardware projects success rate will be very low, failure rate will be approximately 65%. Technology based projects and programs are also not getting good profit rate, they are getting almost 30% of success rate which will be very low comparatively(Joseph Phillips, 2003). Project plays a main role in product, services improvement, it also helps to shorten life cycles of product. Launching windows is possible with the project management. Complex and technical products are increasing highly by project implementation. Project life cycle contains different stages involved in development of project, these will be explained into four distinct phases: conceptualization, planning, execution, termination. All these phases are very essential for project development, each phase has different working process that combinedly helps to reach their goal. There are some criteria that need to be fulfilled by the projects to get successful IT project finally, system quality needs to be high, information should maintain high quality, user satisfaction, impact on other individuals, impact on organizations. Here we got to know important details of project that includes with execution process, project management, time period etc. to complete the project successfully(Martin Stevens, 2002). References:

Every organization has strategic goals and projects helps in achieving these goals. Managing projects is a difficult task and need a deeper understanding of project

And project management helps in aligning the project goals with the organization’s strategic goals by ensuring to deliver right things that increases the organizational value. Therefore, it is important to effectively manage projects for organizational sustainability in this highly competitive environment. The main goal of project management is to ensure all projects are being implemented according to established project management policies and procedures, develop capabilities, and continuously improving the project outcomes through lessons learned. Project management will provide a oversight of how the projects can be handled effectively and increase value (Antonio & Ludo, 2018). Without project management, there will be no direction for the teams to work on the project because there is no defined project plan. The team members will be under lot of pressure in understanding the objectives and completing different tasks. The project will be doomed and will not meet the established deadlines and deliverables expectations. Effective project management sets the expectations and help team members focus on the goals and complete the project without any confusion or chaos. With technical advancements, many organizations started using project management software that can help tackle complex projects. My organization is currently using Clarizen, which is a project management software which helps us in documenting user requirements, organize tasks, manage resources, costs, deliverables, and controlling and monitoring project progress. At the same time, there should also be a scientific approach in managing the tasks and achieving objectives by balancing the demands of the stakeholders ensuring that the purpose is achieved. By using the project management methods defined in PMBOK guidelines, organizations can ensure that projects are being implemented as per established procedures and policies. Many factors influence project performance that will make the
  • 5. project successful or failure. According to the textbook, the main determinants of project success are time, budget, quality and project performance. An organization can achieve goals based on project performance. It is important to continuously monitor project performance based on established or approved timelines, budget, scope and quality. Project can be successful if delivered on time, budget, within scope, and stakeholder satisfaction. All projects are often based on 3 different and important constraints- time, budget, and quality. A change in one of these constraints will automatically impact other two. There is often trade-off between these constraints in order to manage stakeholder requirements and achieve project success. Project constraints always occur, and project management will help deal with them strategically by carefully reviewing the changes by weighing on the impact that they would have. Certain changes can be made to the project plan based on the evaluation thereby controlling budget or timeline overruns. Poor planning and monitoring may often result in the budget overruns and meeting project deadlines. By using these concepts, I will be able to manage my testing projects taking into consideration all key factors will help the project manager to implement projects without impacting the success of the project.
