Strategies for Successful Project Execution

Research says that project execution is one of the most crucial parts of the project life cycle, and it needs to be planned and monitored by a professional in order to succeed. Hence, strong governance, monitoring and execution principles are a must for any project manager.

The project execution is the longest phase in the project life cycle and it is also the most demanding and complex part. But it will be simple once you have a better understanding of the strategies for successful execution.

What is project execution?

In the first phase of project execution, the project manager’s roles and responsibilities are to create project plans and objectives.

Project managers offer a robust project breakdown with tasks, assignees, deadlines, milestones to be achieved and the overall delivery schedule. And teams get to work on the plan outlined.

At the end, teams have deliverables ready to show to project stakeholders.

The ultimate goal of project execution is to deliver as promised, with quality and on time.

Strategies for Successful Project Execution


Project execution is all about operational rigour and excellence. Having the right checks and balances, processes, open collaboration and transparency within the team helps in preventing unwanted issues.

Also, real time communication helps solve issues faster and prevents rework.

But the most important part is to have a well defined scope and clear RACI matrix where people know whom to contact when for what.

Clarity of roles and responsibilities ensures the team is in-sync with the objectives and work collaboratively towards a common goal.
