"Project Management and the Project Management Life Cycle are specific processes and steps for managing the many tasks, responsibilities, people, and moving parts from project launch to project completion. I think the biggest lessons were not to start a project until you have full agreement on the deliverables and methods for dealing with being behind schedule.
The organization that I am interning with is using the Agile methodology, so I am already using that style now. We complete specific tasks in small phases and then turn information over to the client to review. I can see how beneficial it is to operate this way, because it is sometimes simpler to see how something will work rather than have someone explain to you. Interacting with the actual environment gives clients something to provide feedback on." - Sara L.
