Today we're going to look at a6 key questions for project planning, a topic close to my heart. In my former work in the global sector I managed multiple projects around education, disaster management, health and the environment. Whether big or small, project planning includes a series of key questions to be asking. Here are six of them (and yes, there are many more!):
What are the major outcomes of this project?
What are key milestones and measurements?
What will success look like?
Who needs to be involved to make this happen? (This question often takes us into the realm of stakeholder involvement - consider which internal and external stakeholders need to be involved)
What support do different stakeholders need?
What are the roles and responsibilities of the different project players?
I'll be back in a few days with six more questions leaders can be asking as they move into project planning. If you missed the #6 Leadership Questions a Day series a-z you can catch up here.
Have a great Saturday.
