Instructions

Week 6 Assignment – Project Tasks and Timeline Instructions: Carefully look through the "Sample" tab. Pay close attention to the amount of detail included, and the formatting and organization of the list. You will use this sample list as a guide to create your own list of tasks, but you should not duplicate the content from the sample exactly. Navigate to the third tab titled, "Blank Template – Fill This In" and complete the following: 1. In the “Activity” column, outline a plausible list of tasks needed to complete your chosen project. You may group tasks together as in the Sample tab, or list each task separately. 2. In the “Start Date”, “End Date”, and “Days to Complete” columns, estimate plausible timelines for each task or group of tasks. In the first row, highlighted in yellow, give a start and end date for the project as a whole.
