A to Z on starting a project
Network:0
Busy with a career change, studying Project Management (CompTIA Project+).
Scouring the Internet and nowhere can I find a proper step by step on how to start a project, when & how to do what.
It doesn't even outline it in the text books.
Unfortunately that's how my brain works, I need to know what goes where before I can fully understand it. There's no point in learning anything like a parrot ... passing a test and still not knowing how the heck you should do it. So PLEASE correct me if I'm wrong, this is "my A to Z":

1. Create a business case
2. Conduct a feasibility study
3. Develop a project charter
4. Appoint a project team
5. Create a project scope
6. Create a work breakdown structure
7. Create a project schedule
8. Resource planning & management
9. Define the project budget & risk plans
10. Create a communication plan
11. Process change requests & procurement documents
12. Project tools & documentation

There's many combinations to starting and running a project. A lot of what you listed describes processes within at least the first three process groups of initiation, planning and execution.

I do second Sante.
However, note the very expression of the Project that "it is a UNIQUE endeavor"; which means that many of the points listed by you may not be in sync with the actual situations.
It would be wonderful if you can take up a couple of case studies in the industry of your choice; so that you will have a better insight.
Good luck

Dex -

You might want to check the templates section of the community for sample MS Project schedules for different types of projects as those may list key PM activities & deliverables in the sequence which you are looking for.
