Milestones

     

    Milestones are critical events which receive special attention within the project management framework. Besides serving as markers that indicate a project’s progress, milestones allow you to group Tasks, establish relationship between Tasks, and organize their order. They ensure the project is moving in the right direction. A completion of a milestone is a major step towards completion of the project.


    Scenario:

    To understand Milestones better let us consider an IT Test Environment SetUp Project.

    Superficially speaking, an IT Test Environment Set Up can be split into:

    • Database Configuration

    • Workstation Configuration

    • Test Network Configuration

    These major tasks - that outline the entire project - which in turn will contain several other tasks are known as Milestones.

     

    Advantages

    • Uninterrupted workflow with no delays.

    • Proper classification of Tasks, their relationships and dependencies.

    • Clear presentation of 'who does what, when, and for how long'.

    • Ensure projects are on schedule.
