What is the Professional Services Project Life Cycle?

The Professional Services Project Life Cycle differentiates from the regular Project Life Cycle by incorporating feedback and learning into the project’s life cycle. This adaption of the PLC is motivated by the complexity of projects in enterprises delivering professional services solutions.

The Professional Services PLC can be linked to the agile methodology. The project cycle is initiated with a Project Proposal. Following are the planning and execution phases which are both collaborative phases. Information, ideas, and feedback is shared between agency and client. As the project reaches the end of the life cycle, billing and an analysis of the project’s performance is conducted.
