Task 1 1. 1 Project Life Cycle Project Life Cycle has four stages. It shows the life cycle of a project from when it begins to it ends.
a. Defining- This is the first stage of the Project Life Cycle. This phase demands flexibility, awareness, entrepreneurial skill, and political insight (Thamhain & Wilemon, 1975).

b. Planning- Planning is the second phase in the project life cycle. In this stage, the project scope of the defined project is established. "Project schedule and organization setup" (Khang, Moe, 2008) are determined to complement the defined project.
c. Implementing- This is the stage where the proposed project is put into action. The project management team is set up and the project plan is "revised and reviewed" before the project starts. Project activities are carried out and project performance is monitored and evaluated throughout the course of the project.
d. Closure- This is the final step of the Project Life Cycle. In this stage, the project team members assist the end users to operate the project or service. The project team members are assigned other duties, and the resources which were used for the project are "released".
