The Goal of the Schedule Development Process

I've used terms like "realistic" and "well-developed" to describe the type of project schedule we want to develop. Before we continue, let's clarify what the goal of the schedule development process should be. The schedule development process should generate a project schedule that meets the following criteria:

• Complete The schedule must represent all the work to be done. This is why the quality and completeness of the WBS is so important.

• Realistic The schedule must be realistic with regard to time expectations.

• Accepted The schedule must have "buy-in" from team members and stakeholders.

• Formal The schedule must be documented and formalized.
