05 Apr For this week you will return into the Changepoint PPM tool and continue working on the project
For this week you will return into the Changepoint PPM tool and continue working on the project that
you created in prior weeks. As a project goes through the execution phase, project control is critical to
ensure that a project stays within the constraints of time, cost, and scope. A project manager will use
different monitoring techniques to help keep the project within these constraints. If a project incurs
changes, becomes delayed, or costs become higher, a project manager will execute change control to
document and determine how to handle the change.
Once a project is completed, the project team should complete a final project report, which is the
administrative record of the completed project, which identifies all its functional and technical
components as well as other important project history. It includes all the strengths and weaknesses of
the project as it progressed and offers a final assessment of what went right (or wrong) throughout the
life of the project. It is essentially a “lessons learned” document of the project.
