A project is a one-time endeavour, that has definite starting and ending points, that is undertaken to create a unique product or service.
(Controlling) monitoring, measuring and taking corrective action
“If you don’t know where you are going,
how will you know when you get there?”
Use effective meetings
Step 1: Brainstorm all of the tasks that need to be done i.e. WHAT will be done, not how.
Step 2: While tasks are still independent, not in any order, estimate the time each task will take.
Step 3: Put the tasks in order (imagine that one person is doing ALL) to get the sequence.
Step 4: Identify tasks that can be done simultaneously. Group them in columns.
Step 5: Identify the tasks in each of the columns that take the longest and line them up in a row to give the critical path.
