Now that you have a basic idea, it's time to work out a project plan and design...

A lot goes into executing a large scale project. When you're designing something from scratch, you need to be aware of the essential steps and considerations that all projects require. This is where project management comes in.

Project management techniques allow you to take an idea and turn it into reality, by planning all the steps you’ll need to take and all the stakeholders you’ll need to get involved. 

Your idea might be out of this world, but the principles of project management will stay the same.

What is project management?

Coined as the science and art of organisation, project management can be characterised as a series of connected efforts designed to achieve a desired outcome. 

A project involves 5 stages. Watch this video about the stages of a project to get a better understanding of what's involved. 

When designing you project, make sure you can answer the following questions:

  1. What are your aims and objectives?
  2. Who will benefit from your project?
  3. What kind of schedule do you expect to follow?
  4. Who do you need to involve?
  5. What constraints will you face?
