The three most basic process phases

Let’s call it the degenerate process,

  • Plan,
  • Do,
  • Post Mortem

Plan – Produce a plan to do your work. Uderstand the requirements, the products to be produced, estimate the work, list the tasks, plan and mitigate risks.

Do- Perform the work. This can and often is decomposed into sub-processes.

Post Mortem- or reflection. Compare actual performance against the plan, record process data, produce a summary report, and document all ideas for process improvement.
