Construction management is a professional discipline concerned with the effective procurement of built facilities in the context of time, cost and quality objectives, and the growing imperative for sustainable development.
There are principles and process to follow when managing a project and all construction managers should know the phases of project management.
1. Initiation - This is the phase where you create and evaluate the business case in order to determine if it is feasible and worth undertaking. If the project can proceed, then a project charter is created which contains the business case and needs.
2. Planning - This is where the project team develops a plan for everyone to follow. The project manager will create a management plan that includes cost, schedule baselines, scope statement and documentation, work breakdown structure, communication plan, and risk management plan.
- Scope statement is where you define business need, benefits, objectives, deliverables, and key milestones.
- Work breakdown structure is a visual representation where the scope is broken down into manageable chunks.
- Communication Plan is where you outline the communication goals and objectives, communication roles, and communication tools and methods. This is to avoid any misunderstanding and conflicts due to miscommunication.
- Risk management plan is where the managers could identify foreseeable risks, including unrealistic time and cost estimates, budget cuts, changing requirements, and lack of committed resources.
3. Execution - This is where the actual work begins. The team begins to assign tasks, execute management plans and tasks.
4. Performance and Monitoring - This usually happens during the execution phase. This is where measuring progress and performance takes place to ensure the project is on timely manner.
5. Closure - This is the last phase and it means the project has completed. The team creates a list of unaccomplished tasks, performs a final budget, and creates a project report.
