Prioritise tasks – which are most important?



Set realistic times for completing tasks



Check availability of resources / people



Plan for times when you know you can’t work on project (e.g. holiday, other  course deadline etc)



Ensure your employer knows too!

 

Project Management Tools ‘Sequential’ and ‘parallel’ activities • Sequential activities:  – Need to be completed in a sequence, with each activity being completed before the next can begin.  – The sequential tasks are,you the must more timemore management you mustthere do, and stick to deadlines

 

Project Management Tools • Parallel activities:  – Not dependent on completion of any other  tasks  – Or, may be done at any time before or after a particular stage is reached. This gives you great flexibility on when you do them • Understanding whether tasks sequential parallel can help you work outare when you are or  likely to be very busy, and which deadlines are very important to keep.

 

Project Management Tools Gantt Charts • A graph to visually represent tasks • • • •

One axis is the list of tasks The other is time (days/weeks) Block out squares to show your work on each task  You can see what you are supposed to be doing, when and how long for  • Key milestones are clearly identified •  You have a chart against which to plot progress

 

Project Management Tools Critical Path Scheduling  • This is a technique to look at the most essential parts of your project, not what is desired/preferred • Think about what tasks you really must do. Identify them on your gantt chart • These are good for monitoring your progress. If  despite your best effort you are behind schedule, you can negotiate with your employer to see if some non essential tasks could be removed, so that you can complete your project on time.

 

To summarise – managing your project Do... • Plan your project • Make sure you know what is expected of you • Communicate with your employer! Don’t... • Get too focused on process/tools – focus on the result • Put off difficult bits or deadlines • Lose sight of the overall aim of the project
