Integrative Project – Quality Management. The key to controlling quality during the project is not waiting until an issue occurs or a concern is discovered. The project manager must have a plan in place to monitor the activities of the project, especially the execution phase activities. When a variation is discovered, the project manager uses their technical expertise to analyze quality control results and then decide on whether the results of their investigation warrants further action to correct the problem identified or propose a change. If a change is discovered, then a change control board review may be triggered.

Upon successful completion of this assignment, you will be able to:

  • Assess project management performance.
  • Determine quality performance controls.
  • Analyze data using a standard project management template.
  • Solve a project management problem detailing results of information collected.

Background Information

Managing quality requires a well-thought-out, comprehensive plan. Normally, multiple quality management documents are created and then used to determine the quality health of the project. In addition to thinking about the work being completed during the execution phase of the project, the project manager also needs to consider control points to monitor and ensure that they can step in and act to prevent potential issues later in the project management process.
