NVCC Deciding on a Project Cloud Computing in Business Analysis Paper


Introduction to Project Management

Welcome to Project Management Consultants International. We currently have a client who wants to hire a team to work with their PM to develop a project plan for a new line of products that will be available on the international market. As the Project Team on this job, it is your responsibility to decide on the best product or service to develop, develop the plan, execute it, ensure quality control and monitoring, and close the project.

Project Management includes activities to initiate a project, plan the course of the project, execute it, evaluate it, and close it when completed. This requires working with a team to achieve goals to meet stakeholders requirements. Understanding this process will be key to meeting the needs of the company.
