Phase

Postby suresi00 Mon Dec 11, 2017 8:39 pm

Some colleagues told you that they are planning, executing, monitoring and
controlling a project by use of milestones only with durations between 1 and 4
weeks. What do you think?
o The approach is erroneous. A milestone is a significant point with zero duration
to highlight achievements.
o It is a good approach as long as the milestones reflect fixed or imposed dates
during the project lifecycle only.
o It is a good approach if the milestones are used for reviews between
consecutive project phases only.
o It is a good approach because it saves from progress measurement on
activities and work packages.

Manish sir, I didn't understand the question can you please say what they are asking for ?

Can you basically run the project using only milestones?
