Project Management Lifecycle

At Loyola, our Project Management Methodology is based on the latest edition of the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK). We then adapted the PMBOK guidelines to be aligned with our “best fit” approach to Project Management. For more information on PMBOK guidelines, please visit www.pmi.org.

Manage Project Communications and Manage Project Risks are key activities that start at the beginning of the project and continue throughout the entire Project Management Lifecyle. They are not specifically aligned with any one project phase, but are in use from the beginning. Effective Communication Management is important to ensure that the Sponsors, Stakeholders and Team Members are aware of the status of activities. Managing and mitigating Risks are significant activities for the project manager.
