Planning a small project

During planning, you flesh out two major aspects of your project. How you're going to get the project done and how you're going to run the project? You put all this information into a set of documents known as the project plan. If you've already define the project as described in Chapter 2, you have a good foundation for your plan. As you work out the details, you might uncover additional information about the project, such as new deliverables, risks or assumptions.

All you have to do is update your existing project summary or other files with the new info. There are four main components to planning the work that has to be done. First, you have to identify that work, exactly what work has to be done to deliver the desired results. Second, you estimate how much time it will take to perform the work and how much it'll cost. Third, you determine who you need to do the work.

Fourth, you build a schedule of when work will occur and how many days or weeks it will take. In this chapter I'll share approaches to constructing the components of a project plan.
