The Life Cycle of a Project

Most of the hour-long lessons in this book parallel the process that you would normally go through using Microsoft Project to help you plan and manage a project. Have the big picture in mind as you start so that you can understand how one lesson leads into the next. The following sections give you a brief overview of Project's features and how they can help you track and manage your projects.

Clarifying the Goal of the Project

Start by writing down the objective or goal of your project in a short sentence or two. It's essential that you clarify what you hope to accomplish with this project before you start the planning process. If you don't know where you're going, you're likely to wind up in a strange place. You have a chance to record the goal when you start a project file so that you have it handy if you need to explain the project to anyone.
