Seven Processes


The seven principles and seven themes are applied through the seven processes. This allows our project to proceed from an idea to a final product with realized outcomes. Each process is controlled, overseen, and executed by different roles throughout the project management team. The executive, the senior user, the senior supplier, the change authority, and the project manager are each responsible for certain decisions throughout the process and throughout different periods of time during the project lifecycle.

Unlike the principles and themes, the processes are performed sequentially throughout the lifecycle of the project. This is referred to as the process timeline and it forms the skeleton or backbone of the project. Every project has a pre-project portion, an initiation stage, the optional subsequent stages, the final stage, and the post-project portion. As a project moves through these phases, it utilizes the seven processes to control the project and the creation of its desired outcomes.
