Project planning is the key to initiating a successful project and meeting your organization’s objectives. But effective project planning is more difficult to achieve than you might initially believe. Here are some of our top recommendations for completing a successful project planning phase before embarking on your next venture.
- Although this may seem slightly elementary, one of the most important parts of project planning involves figuring out exactly what the project is. Simplify the main goal of the project and determine whether it involves one project or a collection of projects.
- Once you know what you want to achieve, set a start and end date for your project. This will allow you to sequence any smaller tasks and prioritize them based on project deadlines and objectives. By setting dates at the start, this will also prevent your projects from going on for any longer than they should or need to.
- If your project involves several team members, set up routine communication procedures before your start date. For example, determine if someone will report on progress weekly or monthly or if there will be a recurring meeting for all involved parties to provide updates and check in.
