The Challenge: EXECUTION
Network:1146



One of the five Project Management Process Groups required for any project is Executing Process Group. Do you agree that it is "the challenge to make the project to reache its results" ?

According PMBOK guide (2013, 5 ed) Executing Process Group "involves coordinating people and resources, managing stakeholder expectations, as well as integrating and performing the activities of the project in accordance with the project management plan."

Not at all. I can justify why because I have researched it along all my professional life. But instead of me just take a look to the PMP Certfication Content Outline document. You will find there (I do not remember the page but I think is page 3) the distribution of percentage by domain. That will help you about the amount of effort for each domain.

Sergio,

Thank you for your comment.

It is one of the requirements. That means that all other process groups may be needed as well. However, this is the project work and requires lots of efforts.

Elizeu -

Don't confuse the process groups with phases. You could be performing some of the processes from the Executing group in any phase of a project's life.

As far as the challenge goes, I would agree that when the team is actually delivering the scope of a project and transitioning those deliverables, the rubber hits the road. Till then, it's theory!

This is the fun stage, putting the plan into action.

Elizue,

I would believe planning stage is crucial one. If we don't plan, we plan to fail. Execution is half lesser the effort with conceived and high quality planning. Agreed with Kiron that thing is merely theory until tested on ground.

Once again - as Kiron said - do not confuse process groups with project phases or stages

Execution stage is crucial for those who have not planned it thoroughly and their exists too many uncertainties . Of course there always will be unknown-unknown but it's percentage is not that high to make you sweat as you enter execution stage.

Leading Planning Process Group or Executing Process Group must be allways in accordance with the project management plan that is an iterative activity and is progressively elaborated throughout the project’s life cycle.

Hello Elizeu,
The big challenge to achieve project's success relies in combining a solid Planning with a strict Execution and constantly Monitoring & Controlling all processes involved.
