PROJ6003: Project Execution & Control- Risk Management- Report Writing Assignment
As project work is executed, project managers make certain that quality assurance is performed and that quality is controlled. Quality assurance consists of the activities that are undertaken to ensure that a project uses the processes needed to meet quality requirements. Meanwhile, quality control entails monitoring specific project results to determine whether they meet relevant quality standards, which have been defined with the project scope.
Planning for risk management involves determining how to approach, plan and execute the various activities required for managing project risks. Because new risks may be introduced at any point in the project management life cycle, risk management is a continuous process. It begins at the project-planning phase and continues throughout the project-execution phase.
Effective communication is a key factor for managing project execution. However, project managers may face challenges as they communicate with their teams and other project stakeholders. Other factors such as developing, leading and managing project team members are also critical for successfully achieving project goals.
