Chapter 12. Reviewing the Project Plan > Looking at the Big Picture

Looking at the Big Picture

After you create a first draft of a project, it is a good idea to carefully review all project, task, resource, and assignment information. After Project calculates the schedule and costs of the project, you need to step back from the details and look at the big picture. Does it make sense? How successfully has the project plan met the overall objectives? Is the project going to finish on time? Are costs within budget?

Often, the first draft of a project includes missed deadlines, costs that have exceeded the project budget, and other inconsistencies. After Project has calculated the schedule, a task’s finish date might now be scheduled five days after an internally imposed deadline, and the total cost for the project might be in excess of $5,000 over the contractually approved budget.
