Creating the Project Scope Statement

June 5, 2018

A project scope statement outlines the deliverables you plan to produce by the end of a project. The details of writing an effective scope statement constitute a separate blog post, so for now, we assume that you have made it to this point.

Work Breakdown Structure (WBS)

June 10, 2018

To create a work breakdown structure (WBS), start with your scope statement and break your deliverable or deliverables into smaller pieces. You aren’t getting into tasks yet, just smaller deliverables. Another name for this section is the scope baseline, and each sub-deliverable is called a work package.

Identifying Resource Availability

June 25, 2018 - June 30, 2018

Most often, your limiting resource will be the availability of your team members or employees. In this step, you need to consider when they will be able to spend time working on an allotted task. Even though it may only take a day of dedicated work to complete an assignment, you may need to expand the amount of designated time to a few days or even weeks if there are many other projects occurring simultaneously.

Identifying Important Milestones

July 5, 2018 - July 10, 2018

Milestones allow you to track the progress of your projects from start to finish. This way, if you get behind, you will know far in advance of your final deadline and be able to adjust your plans or expectations to stay on target.
