Guide and Best Practices

A project schedule gives an overview of the project’s timeline. It outlines project tasks, resources needed, and the time allocated for each task.

How to Create a Project Schedule?

  • Collaborate with the team to identify all activities needed to complete the project.
  • Identify the deliverables that make up the project. Use a work breakdown structure to list these down in order to break them up into project activities.
  • Analyze each task to identify the dependencies they might have on other tasks. Then sequence the activities and document them on your project schedule.
  • Assess the availability of the resources needed to perform each activity and allocate them accordingly.
  • Estimate the number of working hours required to complete each task. It could be days, weeks or even months.
  • Make sure resources are appropriately allocated and the time durations are correctly estimated.
  • Create project milestones on the schedule. You can then link them to the relevant tasks.
  • Once you have leveled the resources and ensured that the estimated time durations are correct, start developing your schedule using a Creately template.
  • Invite other project members to review the schedule by sharing the diagram with them. The changes they make will be instantly viewable to you.
  • Regularly review your schedule and update it. Share an edit/review diagram link with others so anyone can easily access it to monitor and manage project progress.
