Project Integration Management


Project Integration Management is the first stage in the project management processes. From the keyword “integration” itself, it incorporates all other knowledge areas in project management. There are seven processes in this area.

The first process which is to develop a project charter is required before any succeeding processes will be performed because the project charter is the document or the evidence that gives the authority to commence the said project.

Once the project charter is already present, the next step is to develop the Project Management Plan. This is document that defines how the project should be executed, monitored and controlled, and closed. This process is the signal for initiating other knowledge areas. The initial output of other knowledge areas are incorporated in the Project Management Plan. The development of this plan is not a one-time activity. As other processes progress, this document evolves from a summary to a detailed plan.

When the initial Project Management Plan is already developed, the project manager can begin to execute the planned project activities specified in the plan. The work performance data is collected and analysed by various knowledge areas especially by Monitoring and Controlling Process Group to improve the performance of future work packages.

While executing the activities specified in the Project Management Plan or while work is in progress, knowledge is being managed and utilized. This involves documenting knowledge to be shared to other individuals within the organization. Knowledge management is not an easy task. There must be an atmosphere of trust within the project team in order to motivate people to share their skills, experiences, and expertise.

Execution of project activities are being monitored and controlled.

Call me `Alchie` coz it's sweeter

In our country, calling `Sir` or `Ma'am` someone in the position is considered to be respectful, more especially when addressing a teacher. These words are automatic titles and at times being demanded. I remember one incident, when I attended a team building of public teachers with a friend, I was reprimanded for calling a teacher `Auntie`.

I used to address those persons I don't know by these titles, every person I encounter, even to a tricycle driver in our village. I prefer "Sir" than "Manong" or "Pre" or "Bai". Maybe because I wanted to establish a certain degree of barrier between us, a boundary automatically present when using those words.

Personally, I prefer not to be called `Sir`, or any other endearment, to people I am acquainted with. It is as if we don't know each other when they call me by other names. I recall being upset when a close friend from high school suddenly called me "Bai", as if he suddenly forgot …

I am fond of programming. When I am at home and with my personal computer, you don’t see me playing DOTA. You will see me with a serious face, shifting from one window to another, and constantly pressing the Alt-Tab and F5 keys. I am with a web browser and a text editor coding something, may be a system that will help ease my work at the office or a personal project.
My projects are usually web-based applications. When we say web-based, it uses different technologies, programming languages and frameworks; from server-side to client-side scripts: PHP, CodeIgniter, Javascript, JQuery, HTML, CSS, Bootstrap, Font-Awesome, React, NodeJS, and MySQL; all at once. You must know most of them in order to build a good web-based application. You need to be a genius to memorize all the methods and classes you can use on your system. Unfortunately, I am not a genius.
I don’t memorize everything. I am not good with memorization. When we still had an internet connection at home, it was easy for me to…
