7 steps towards writing a project schedule


As a manager, you’ll doubtless find yourself in charge of overseeing or proposing projects. Executing a successful project is much easier when you understand how to develop a project schedule. Planning the entire thing from start to finish and establishing accurate time estimates is essential.


Project management involves a lot of moving parts and a lot of communication, which is where your project schedule is vital. Putting thought into who is responsible for what task and by when they should complete it streamlines communication and eliminates confusion. When division of responsibility is present from the beginning, work becomes much easier.

As useful as having a project roadmap that you can see to completion is, don’t discount the possibility that you may need to revise some things. A well-designed project leaves room for unexpected delays where possible, and factors in extra time so that expectations aren’t disappointed.
