The major task of integration of all phases and stakeholders for the project is a key concern in any kind and nature of project and can be achieved only by enforcing a project management plan.

The project progress is periodically monitored against the project management plan. For this purpose one of the key elements is the project program which is prepared during the initial stages of the project (and detailed out as the project progress and more information on the project is gathered) and describes all the details that are relevant to the successful execution of the project. This program and the project management plan together is always reviewed by the senior management to ensure the successful delivery of the project.

The formation of a well- structured project team is critical to the success of the project. The role of each resource deployed on the project is defined by the project manager and is assigned to the project during the initiation and planning stages of the project.
