You’ve honed in on your project’s goals with laser precision and you’re ready to hire the perfect PM to get you to the finish line.Enter your technical project manager. Someone who is equipped to gather the data of your goals and your team’s unique wheelhouse and turn them into a road map.Your ideal PM is skilled at managing projects, like yours, that contain a high degree of technicality but also can come from a variety of professional backgrounds.Examples of what to expect when working with a technical project manager:• Brainstorming and narrowing down scope• Planning the project and implementing technology needed• Scheduling and designation of project tasks to team members• Execution of each phase of the project• Managing the project’s budget• Communicating with all stakeholders• Collaborating with department heads to achieve a common goal“Success is not final; failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” – Winston ChurchillBeing prepared with a clear plan is golden.Here are five basic phases of project management to keep in mind as you get started.Phase 1: Project InitiationThe project initiation phase is the first stage of turning an abstract idea into a meaningful goal. In this stage, you need to develop a business case and define the project on a broad level. In order to do that, you have to determine the need for the project and create a project charter.Phase 2: Project planningThe planning stage needs focus and diligence while you layout your roadmap. The second phase can take up almost half of the entire project’s timespan unless you employ some tried and true systems. We’ve got you covered with these toolsPhase 3: Project ExecutionThis stage is where the actual work happens. The project manager, establishes efficient workflows and carefully monitors progress. During this phase consistent effective collaboration is maintained between stakeholders. Collaboration software can be helpful to improve efficiency and increase the productivity of your team.

Tracking ensures you stay on budget and can lean out future projects.Phase 5: Project ClosingThe final phase of the project, project closure and final delivery. Sometimes another team consults to provide objectivity on deliverables. Terminating contracts and completing the necessary paperwork is critical to confidently completing.
