Video Description

This lesson focuses on final process of the project, which is close project (or phase). The close project, or phase creates the final product, service or result. This happens on the assumption that all the other processes are complete. The inputs are the project management plan and the accepted deliverables. The tools used are expert judgement, meetings and analytical techniques. [toggle_content title="Transcript"] So we're in the final process of the entire project. And then also it's the final process within the integration knowledge area, which is close project phase. Close project phase, this is under the assumption that all other processes have been completed. If you remember back in the beginning of the table that I would like you guys to memorize, for the [brain dump]. There are two processes within closing. The other one happens to be in procurement. Once you close all your contracts or procurement documents, you can then go on to this process which is the close project phase. This creates the final product, serve as a result. Once you do that you will create like a lessons learned. Because remember you have organizational process assets and the assumption is your project is not going to be complete, you are going to update these organization process assets. So that future project managers can use this information on their project. The inputs are the project management plan, and expected deliverables. So you have your project management plan and you have it signed off, the customer is satisfied and has accepted this. The tools that are used are expert judgements, meetings and analytical techniques. So you want to have all these, the project management plan to make sure you've met all the requirements and you have the customer sign off. You want to update your organizational process assets and then you are done. Hopefully this is the last part of the video and you are all ready to take the project management certification. So on summary of integration, we have gone over the ten knowledge areas and we have gone over the five process groups. Now you have an understanding of how integration relates to each one of these knowledge areas. It starts off with planning where you create the project charter, then you go off and you develop the project management plan. Now you have the project management plan signed off by the client, you can go off and execute that project management plan. While doing that you are monitoring and controlling to make sure your plan, which is your baseline is meeting all the actual results. You have your baseline versus actual and you are just monitoring the variances. If they are off then you also have the change request board. So you are submitting change requests to compensate for all your variances, and your change request board is either approving or denying your change request and then you end the project with the closing phase. In summary integration covers all your knowledge areas and it is basically the...if you consider each one of the knowledge areas to be a piece of the puzzle, integration is putting all those pieces together. Thank you for listening. [/toggle_content]

00:04
So now we're in the final process of the entire project, and it also is the final process within the integration knowledge area, which is closed. Project our phase.
00:15
So the clothes project your phase.
00:18
This is under the assumption that all other processes have been complete. So you remember back in the beginning, the table that I would like you guys to memorize for the brain Don't.
00:28
There are two processes within closing. The other one happens to be in procurement.
00:33
So once you close
00:34
all your, um, contracts or procurement documents,
00:39
you can then go to this process, which is
00:42
the coolest project. Your face
00:43
on this creates the final product service a result
00:48
and once Ah,
00:49
once you do that,
00:51
you will create, um,
00:54
like a lessons learned because remember, you have organizational process assets
00:59
and the assumption is
01:00
your project's gonna be complete.
01:03
You're going to update these organizational process assets that future project managers can use this information on their project.
01:11
The inputs are the project transfer plan
01:14
and accepted deliver Bols. So you have
01:17
your project management plan and you have it signed off that
01:21
the customer is satisfied and has accepted this
01:25
the tools that are used, our expert judgment
01:27
meetings and analytical techniques. So you want to be able to assess the project plan to make sure that you've met all the requirements and you had the customer sign off
01:37
and
01:38
you want to
01:41
update your organizational process assets,
01:42
and then you're done.
01:45
And
01:46
hopefully ah,
01:48
this is the last part of the video.
01:51
And you're all ready to take the project, Landesman, Uh, certification. So, in summary of integration,
01:57
we've gone over the
01:59
10 knowledge areas and we've gone over the five process groups. So now you have an understanding of how integration relates to each one of these knowledge areas.
02:09
It starts off with planning. We create the project charter. Then you go off and you develop the project bands with plan.
02:15
Now, you have the project management plan signed off by the client. You can go off and execute that project man's plan.
02:23
While you're doing that, you're Bonner and controlling to make sure that
02:27
your plan, which is your baseline,
02:30
is ah,
02:30
meeting all there.
02:32
The actual results. So you have your
02:36
baseline versus actual
02:38
and you're just monitoring the variances.
02:42
If they're off, then you also have the,
02:45
um, change your quest board.
02:47
So you're submitting change requests to compensate for all your variances
02:53
and your change. Request board is either approving or denying your change, your quest.
02:59
And then you end the project with the closing phase.
03:01
So, um,
03:04
in summary integration covers all your knowledge areas and is basically the,
03:08
um

if you can
03:12
you consider each one of the knowledge areas to be a piece of a puzzle. Integration is putting all those pieces together.
