All projects have a point of origin and a point of termination, a beginning and an end. The challenge for the project manager and project implementation team is to accomplish the multiple tasks needed to complete the project within that time frame. Each project evolves from one phase to another. Typical stages include project identification, planning, development, implementation, closure or termination and evaluation. The stages of a project are similar to that of new products entering the market. Projects, just like products, undergo a life cycle. This paper explores all aspects of the life cycle of the Emergency Department Fast Track Project at Acme Hospital System. The paper specifically focuses on the overall project description and history specific to Acme Hospital System, the life cycle process of the project including the determination of a timeline, tasks, schedules, budgets, risk management plan, communication plan, auditing process for the closure of the project and finally, identification of measurable indicators to measure the success of the project. The paper includes many illustrations, tables and figures.

From the Paper:

"The major task in mitigating risks is the ability to change plans quickly in an attempt to minimize the impact of the risk on the overall scope of the project. Although it is highly desirable and preferred by the project manager and team that a project be completed just as planned, this rarely happens. All projects incur risks and all projects sustain some amount of change. It is task of the project manager and team to develop a process and a plan of action to handle those changes."
