How to... Manage a project


How to... manage a project

Project management is the practice of initiating, planning, executing, controlling, and closing the work of a team to achieve specific goals and meet specific success criteria over a specified time period.

In this 'How to...' guide and associated templates we have sought to look past the jargon and to equip you to successfully deliver a project in your parish or context. Projects vary hugely in their size and complexity and project management is an accredited profession which reflects this. Our intention has been to appropriately simplify for you the process of planning and managing a project, whilst ensuring that the benefits of good project management are retained.

If you require any support in planning or managing your project, or would like to speak to someone regarding using the templates attached to this guide, please contact Chris Priddy chris.priddy@bristoldiocese.org
