Task 2:
What is Project Management?
A project is a unique in that it is not a routine/daily operation/activity of an entity, but a specific set of operations/activities designed to accomplish a unique goal. A project team often includes people who don’t usually work together – sometimes from different organizations and across multiple geographies.

For e.g. the development of software for an improved business process, the construction of a building or bridge, the relief effort after a natural disaster, the expansion of sales into a new geographic market — all are projects.
And all must be expertly managed to
deliver the on-time,
on-budget results,

3. Project launch or execution
Resources' tasks are distributed and teams are informed of responsibilities. This is a good time to bring up important project related information.
4. Project performance and control
Project managers will compare project status and progress to the actual plan, as resources perform the scheduled work. During this phase, project managers may need to adjust schedules or do what is necessary to keep the project on track.
5. Project close
After project tasks are completed and the client has approved the outcome, an evaluation is necessary to highlight project success and/or learn from project history.
Projects and project management processes vary from industry to industry; however, these are more traditional elements of a project. The overarching goal is typically to offer a product, change a process or to solve a problem in order to benefit the organization.
These are the basis of Project control and life cycle as from the start date till the end of the project.
From project pre launching that is the planning stage i.e. feasibility stage of the project, here all experts sit and done allot of brain storming activity and set up a clear road map for achievable on timely basis. Targets are set for different stages so that a complete project will complete on time.

A control layers are spread all in between the complete life cycle of budget to overcome any short comings throughout.

Deadlines are placed to achieve the project on timely basis.

Project Planning and Control: 10 Essential Elements
Firstly, I need to make sure we are all on the same page when it comes to what a plan is. Many people (and a distressing number of project managers, too) think only of a Gantt chart when they think of a project plan. You may recognize it as what you get from Microsoft Project. This is better called a project schedule, in that it shows when we expect the various sections of the project to happen. We will come back to this later.
What we want to have in our project plan is:
1. Aim of project
2. Outputs.
3. Quality criteria.
4. Resources.
5. Management structure.
6. Milestones.
7. Tolerances.
8. Dependencies.
9. Risks.
10. Schedule.
Let's have a look at these in turn, and see why they are needed, and what we want to achieve with each of them.
1. Aim of Project
What do we want to produce? The aim of the project is a mixture of the reasons for doing the project and the benefits that are expected from it. This section of the plan can be either fulfilled by linking to the main business case, or by restating it in language for the expected audience. For example, your business case may have been written for high level approval in your organization. You may want to now put it in terms the project executive expects.

Here the main aim of the project is to develop and build new storage facility to store tennis courts material and there timely availability when required for...
