  • Fako Khoanyane Lesotho I appreciate that at the planning phase, the how part of solving the problem is no very important only a clear definition of a problem and the outcome that would be considered a solution to the problem

  • Samson Olajumoke Nigeria Goals are set in the planning phase of a project and at the completion of the planning phase, a clear picture of what the problem is has been established and equally important, a clear picture of what outcome will resolve the process has also been established.

  • Emad Mouter Qatar at the completion of the planning phase, a clear picture of what the problem is has been established and equally important, a clear picture of what outcome will resolve the process has also been established

  • Emmanuel Sanwi Nigeria The planning phase on setting project objectives is looking at the entire goals been set and the success of the broad goals with careful measurements before the success can be determined,and identification of the problems and what would solve it.

  • YIMAM MULUGETA Norway All the entire project set in the planning phase absolutly,but what about the uncertainities?

  • Odongo Moses Uganda The Planning Phase: setting project objectives In the planning phase broad goals for the entire project are set. In particular, it must be determined if the entire system or only part of the system needs to be replaced. Whilst this does not seem to be a significant step, it is very important to the overall project. It is through the setting of these broad system goals that the measurements of success can be determined. That is, at the completion of the planning phase, a clear picture of what the problem is has been established and equally important, a clear picture of what outcome will resolve the process has also been established. It should be noted here that we have not identified what needs to built into the computer based information system. There is a very good reason for this - at this stage it is not relevant. In the problem solving phase, the focus is on identifying the problem and what would solve it - not how the problem has arisen and how it should be solved. By maintaining this focus, the solution is linked to the problem and through this a process for solving it developed. A computer based information system should never be created for the sake of creating it - it should be created to solve the problem that was identified. Too often, a computer based information system will be created but will not solve the problem that it was intended to. This can usually be traced back to the initial planning phase. When the outcomes to solve the problem were established, they would focus on what the system could be made to do, rather than what it actually needed to do to solve the problem. Consequently the system that was built, even though it achieved its goals, did not solve the initial problem. The quality of the initial planning will have a significant influence on the ability of the final product to solve the problem.

  • Stanley Amaechi Nigeria planning is the vital part of the project.

  • Oyetope Oyewunmi Nigeria The planning stage is the "entire" system itself.

  • Herbert Chitongo Zimbabwe the planning phase is the stage where the problem is defined and the degree of which success of the project is determined .

  • Hugh Moorehouse Jamaica It should be noted that in the Planning Phase a solution solving the problem is not identified.

  • CONFIDENCE Ekeh Nigeria here the general purpose of any project manager is to foresee or predict as many dangers and problems as possible, to plan , organise and control activities so that the project is completed as successful and as possible in spite of all risks poised.

  • Mubarak Saeed Saudi Arabia The key to a successful project is in the planning. Creating a project plan is the first task you should do when undertaking any project. Often project planning is ignored in favour of getting on with the work. However, many people fail to realise the value of a project plan in saving time, money and for avoiding many other problems.

  • Luciane Castro United States of America I am confused. Am I doing an IT project management? from some slides on, I have been reading about computer system, software, hardware...

    • Gabriel Onumah Ghana dont be confuse because computer system, software etc are all IT project related.

  • Rita Musoke United Kingdom In the planning phase, the entire project is set on broad goals which are then determined through deciding if the entire system or partly need to be replaced.

  • Faith Edamkue Nigeria Identifying what exactly the problem is and what should be the outcome to solve the problem, is key.
