Project Management - difference between a Project Management Framework and a Product Development Life Cycle

The Project Management Framework
  • Includes the activities needed to manage a project.
  • Activities remain the same no matter what product or service the project delivers.

The Product Development Life Cycle
  • Includes activities to analyze, design, build and implement a specific product or service.
  • Activities vary depending on the type of product or service being developed.

  1. Yeah its a good article. According to you what we project managers do is communicating. And a lot of this communication is done during project meetings. It can sometimes feel like you are running from one meeting to another and that your time is often wasted. Meetings don’t start on time, the issues aren’t dealt with, there is no agenda, there is no focus, nobody assigns any follow ups or tasks and of course then they also don’t end on time. An efficient project manager is required for the good management of a project. I think a project manager should PMP certified. Looking forwards to apply what I learned in PMP classes in my company.
