Each project is unique. No single tool, practice, process, or strategy is equally successful across all projects. What this means is that the approach taken on each project is different, and often depends on context, goals, available resources, progress to date, and the team’s readiness to use the results of the project. Despite this variability, the project management process groups (initiate, planning, execute, controlling & monitoring, closeout) are often useful for framing how a project should proceed.
