Project Management Process – Phase 3 – Implementing – Quality Assurance (#21 in the Hut Project Management Process) By John Filicetti

Description

Quality assurance is applied to ensure the project will satisfy the relevant quality standards and should be performed throughout the project. In most companies, the Quality Assurance/Quality Control teams will provide this function.

Some of the steps the project manager should take to ensure quality projects are:

  • Review project deliverables prior to implementation using the project test plan
    • The earlier they any identified problems are fixed, the cheaper the solution
  • Anticipate quality deviations and take preventive actions
  • Test project and product processes prior to deployment
  • Solicit early customer review and feedback

Ensure all quality assurance documentation are posted to the collaborative workspace and provided to all project stakeholders. As the project progresses, the Project Office or a senior project/program manager will ensure project quality by holding Project Quality reviews.

Steps

  • Quality Assurance/Quality Control team will provide quality assurance throughout the project
  • PMO or Sr. PM will conduct periodic project reviews
  • PM reviews project results against objectives with team
  • Anticipate quality deviations and take preventive actions
  • Test project and product processes prior to deployment
  • Solicit early customer review and feedback
