SLDC PROJECT MANAGEMENT 2 are described and applicable case tools identified. These phases include planning, investigation, management, system analysis; design and implementation phases. Planning The planning phase will integrate a comprehensive assessment of the project scope, re- source allocation and logistical requirements (Warburton & Kanabar, 2014). Among the issues that will be considered include the system requirements such as hardware and software needed to develop and implement the system. These will be aligned with the identified business goals and objectives as described in its profile and the assumption regarding the nature of operations (Kinicki & Williams, 2008). The planning phase examines the business environment to get the needed information that will provide an insight on the issues and challenges that it is likely to face. A SWOT analysis which involves the assessment of strengths, weaknesses opportunities and threats to the project is undertaken. The identification of strengths ensures that the project management can capitalize on them to enhance system productivity and competency. The determination of potential or existing weaknesses allows the project management to develop or identify strategic solutions (Warburton & Kanabar, 2014). Weaknesses of the project may not be apparent in the planning phase; however, it is prudent to ensure that potential chal- lenges to the project are identified. The project is developed with the aim of satisfying a unique demand in the market; therefore, diverse opportunities may be identified that could enhance the company’s position in the industry and provide it with sustainable competitive advantage in the market (Kinicki & Williams, 2008). The planning process must identify potential threats to the project that may compromise its current and future performance. Early detection of threats allows the management to identify critical countermeasures to mitigate their impact in the event that they occur or prevent such threats from occurring alto-

In view of these, the feasibility of the project is evaluated on the basis of current and ex- pected future demand against the available resources (Warburton & Kanabar, 2014). Feasibility
