The execution phase in an IT project is when the work gets going and the plan is transformed into action and results. From the start of this phase, it's important for the project manager to establish regular communications with project stakeholders – management, the development team, sponsors, and others – to keep them informed on how the project is progressing. In addition to communicating regularly with stakeholders, a project manager should ensure that the team works well together and that the deliverables are meeting the quality standards, as well as other objectives, set in the project plan.
