What Is Project Planning?

Project planning involves translating your business requirements into a properly defined technical vision. A typical project plan includes specific goals, deliverables, features, tasks, timelines and costs.

During the project planning phase, our project managers will consult directly with your team to make sure the key goals of the software are well-defined and can be met by the proposed solution.

Potential costs, technical challenges and opportunities will be highlighted and specific decisions taken as to the scope of the system. As part of this process, you will receive a solid plan for the delivery of your project, including high level timelines and cost estimates.

The documentation explains responsibilities for key members and establishes procedures for change requests and work delivery.

Why do I need project planning?

Thoroughly defining a scope at the outset prevents “scope creep” – a phenomenon used to describe the gradual changing of scope over time, which results in unexpected costs and delays.


The length of the planning process depends entirely on the size of the project – contact our Head of Delivery for more information.
Every large project requires careful planning, yes – but we can take a project-management light approach for smaller pieces of work.
