  • Planning

  • Organisation

  • Collaboration

  • Purpose

  • Objectives

  • Review

Planning level of detail

Planning – Level Of Detail

  • Not too much detail…

  • For simple projects written list of activities is ok

  • Larger projects require activities list, usually spreadsheet

  • Large complex projects involving multiple teams, skills and functions over a longer period of time best planned using integrated project planning tool

    Not planning at all is planning to fail !
