Introduction to Week 2: Project Planning

Welcome to The Ins and Outs of Project Planning! This second week we focus on answering the question, how do we develop a plan?

During this week, we’ll understand why we plan and what a plan should or should not include. We will discuss the process of scoping out a project and see tools that can help us identify what should be included in our project. We’ll learn about sequencing project tasks and the nature of the dependencies among project activities. We will learn how to determine a project’s duration and critical path, how it is determined, and why it is useful. We’ll see how we should schedule a project and, finally, we’ll review how you can make changes to a plan to support your overall project objectives.
