A checklist to use during the planning and scheduling phase of your project.
What this is
A checklist to use during the planning and scheduling phase of your project. Contains items to ensure your schedule includes all project work, such as cross-functional activities, testing, and more. Also provides a few guidelines for getting the team through this critical phase.
Why it's useful
A project consists of more than the main technical or development or design work. Many activities from supporting groups must also be included, for the product or service to be truly ready for customers at the end of the project. This checklist will help you make sure your project schedule includes everything it should. Before you've even gotten to detailed scheduling, it can remind you of items that should be included in the project scope and investigated during the planning phase.
How to use it
Read this checklist as you're starting your planning work, to be aware of the entire range of activities you should consider for your schedule. Reference it during the planning phase as necessary. Then be sure to check your schedule against it as you're nearing the end of planning. Make sure all items are covered so that your team commits to a full and accurate schedule!
The checklist includes both items that apply to any project, plus a number of items that are specific to technology development projects. You can customize this template to add items specific to your company and industry.
