Project life cycle

Postby Sam Sat Jan 06, 2018 11:39 am

I have 2 questions on Project life cycle:

1- Is the project life cycle defined in the planning domain ?

2- who decide which project life cycle to choose in case there was no RACI matrix ? is it the Project Manager or the Business Analyst ?

Thank you

It is up to the project management team to determine the best life cycle for each project. The decision is taken in collaboration with the people who are in project management team. Typically, project life cycle is identified during project initiation as project charter includes major project milestones. And these milestones influenced highly by the selected project life cycle. In this way, you can say life cycle is identified in Planning domain of PMI-PBA

Project life cycle is not same as product lifecycle, Project life cycle related decisions are taken in collaboration within project management team which is the leadership team and business analysts can be part of project management team.

Hi Seema ,

I also would like to know if life cycle can be modified after it has been identified in the Planning domain and the execution of the project take place.
For example we identified that we will use Predictive Life cycle and then after we noticed that a lot of modification is taking place , is it possible to change to Adaptive life cycle .


Thank you again
