By Clement Kitetu, PMP

Managing projects is a process with activities and check-stops. Basic principles apply in all situations regardless of the type of project you are managing.

Here are 12 step-by-step commandments to follow when handling any project (whether big or small):

  1. Engage the client
  2. Understand requirements (meet them at the point of need)
  3. Document the requirements
  4. Define the scope (what is and what is not)
  5. Develop a budget
  6. Create an agreement/ contract
  7. Plan the work/ schedule
  8. Execute the work as per schedule
  9. Perform regular review based on the promise
  10. Ensure sign-off deliverables at each stage
  11. Document lessons learnt
  12. Understand the customer/ contractor culture and behaviour well :-)
