The Project Schedule Part 1: Overview

Planning

Now that you have a Project Charter, a Project Management Plan and a Project Plan, you can construct a detailed schedule. As mentioned in an earlier post, many refer to the Project Schedule as “The Project Plan”. Since the schedule does not detail how tasks are going to be accomplished it is not a plan. That is why we have a separate document for the Project Plan.

In the upcoming posts I will present the following topics related to constructing a Project Schedule:

  • Part 2: Schedule Tools
  • Part 3: Work Breakdown Structure
  • Part 4: Resource Assignments and Estimates
  • Part 5: Dependencies
  • Part 6: The Critical Path
  • Part 7: Schedule Adjustments (Crashing and Fast-Tracking)
