SDLC in Project Management (All SDLC phases with examples)

Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC), is a series of phases that a project must go through from its inception to its completion. The software development lifecycle includes Initiation and Concept Development, Planning, Requirements definition, UI Design, Development and Integration.
Keep in mind:
A project phase is a group of related activities that leads to the completion of one or several deliverables.
A project doesn’t need to include all phases. As a project manager, you will need to decide how to break it up.
