Top Tips

Make a Project Plan

A project plan helps define the approach being used and what the end goal is at the end of the project.

At a minimum, a project plan answers basic questions about the project:

Why? - What is the problem or value proposition addressed by the project? Why is it being sponsored?

What? - What is the work that will be performed on the project? What are the major products/deliverables?

Who? - Who will be involved and what will be their responsibilities within the project? How will they be organized?

When? - What is the project timeline and when will particularly meaningful points, referred to as milestones, be complete?
