A project life cycle is the series of phases that a project passes through from itsinitiation to its closure. Project goals should align with organisational goals such as improvedoperations or increased revenues, reducing costs or improving efficiencies.Before resources can be committed to a project, the reason for its proposal and the benefitsit is expected to deliver need to be understood by people in positions empowered to makedecisions about the expenditure of an organisation’s resources.
