Join Bonnie Biafore for an in-depth discussion in this video Scheduling work, part of Project Management Foundations: Small Projects.
The Project Schedule is where all your project planning comes together.…You figure out the order in which work has to be done.…Using your time estimates you determine when tasks can start, how long they will…take, and when they should finish.…And you assign people to the tasks if you haven't done so already.…The order in which you do things can make a big difference in how smoothly your project runs.…Some work has to be done before you can do other tasks.…For example, the construction has to be complete before the building…inspector comes out.…
In project management speak the order is called a Task Dependency or Task Link.…For example, a finish to start link is when one task has to finish before…the next one can start.…You can link tasks backwards or forwards depending on how you like to do it.…For many people, working backwards is easier.…You can start with the final deliverable for the project, maybe scribbling it on…the right side of the piece of paper.…Then ask yourself, what has to be done before I can deliver this?…
