The development project cycle and a Barbadian project

The project cycle is common to all projects.However, the number of phases of the cycle varies from project to project.Not only do the number of project cycle phases vary, but the phases of the cycle are seldom sequential. Each phase has its own set of problems.The model for developing the project cycle changes depending on the nature of the project, and there is an interdependence and integrativeness among the phases, which means that a problem at one phase can also directly affect the other phases, including completed ones.The Bridgetown Sewerage Project in Barbados has two main components, construction of a sewer system, and the establishment of a public enterprise to manage the sewer system.Eight phases of the project cycle are outlined and discussed.The phases include: conception, formulation, appraisal, approval, implementation, reporting, and evaluation.
