14 ©Platinum Services Group Limited Project vs Product Management What is the difference between Project Management and Product Management? Project Management deals with managing the project from conception to completion. The processes in each phase of the project life cycle produce the deliverables. Product Management deals with managing the research, development and operations of the product until it is dismantled and retired from operations

15 ©Platinum Services Group Limited XPRODis methodology identifies 5 generic phases in a project life cycle. In this phase we define the Project Scope. We ask: What do we have to do? In this phase we obtain Management Approval. We ask: Is the project justifiable and does management approve to commit resources? In this phase the project is fully Planned, Documented and Agreed. We ask: What do we have to do and how are we going to achieve it?. In this phase we perform the work and are concerned with: How can we control the delivery of the results?. In this phase we bring the project to an orderly end and are concerned with: What is outstanding? Project Phases Initiation Planning Execution Closing Concept
