Once you determine what your deliverable is, you need to create a work back schedule. It is important to break down the deliverable into key milestones to help break the project down into manageable components. It is also important to realize that meeting each milestone will involve time working alone and time collaborating with others. Block out working time on your calendar to set aside the time needed to finish your project work. If you have dependencies on others, even more time is usually needed. Everyone has busy schedules so it is important to look out at a two week horizon to make sure you will be able to secure the meetings with others that you will need input from to complete your project. Remember it is you who is accountable for your deliverables so you need to ensure that you have the resources, input and time to succeed and milestone planning helps you do just that.
