As a projectmanager, you should see the big picture and coordinate the integration of these processes throughouta project life cycle (PLC). You begin with considering common elements to most projects (Five phasesand Ten knowledge areas), and reflecting on any changes happened, and later incorporating thechange requirements into each phase of PLC. As a result, relevant project elements and processescan be integrated and managed holistically.Project Integration requests that each phase of PLC must be carefully designed, evaluated andassessed based on specific project management approach. It is your decision, as a project manager,on what process groups are incorporated, and how Integrated Change Control (ICC) to be carried on.These decisions might be based on the ultimate goal and characteristics of the project, thestakeholders’ objectives or the budget, among other elements.PROJ6001 Assessment 1 Brief.docx Page 2 of 8Instructions:In this assessment, students are to work individually or in groups (max 4 members) to complete aproject management report to Executive Management, using PMBOK 6th Edition (PMI, 2017) as aguide.
