Project Management Lifecycle

At Loyola, our Project Management Methodology is based on the PMBOK (Project Management Body of Knowledge) Guide to Project Management 4th edition. We then adapted the PMBOK guidelines to be aligned with our “best fit” approach to Project Management. Please contact the PMO for additional information on the PMBOK guidelines.

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.
