The Project Lifecycle

Understand the Structure of a Project

This is the first of three linked lectures that will help you understand the structure of a project.

  1. In this one, I'll introduce you to the project lifecycle and the four stages in the lifecycle model that I will be using throughout this course.
  2. In the next one, I will discuss the number of stages you should choose.
  3. In the third, I will ask you - and then answer - the question: 'Why have stages at all?'

To help you make notes, you can download and print out the illustration of the project lifecycle, below the video.
