Among the most important aspects of project management is establishing milestones. Milestones pinpoint goals that a team would like to achieve by designated deadlines and helps team members measure successes and failures throughout the lifecycle of a project.

These defining moments should take into consideration the following phases: initiation, planning, execution, and closure. Tasks should be grouped in the appropriate phases so they can be monitored during and after. This guarantees that any mishaps that could prolong project completion are corrected in a timely manner, thus reducing risk. Project information should be compiled on a master schedule that includes start dates and duration as well as succeeding and preceding activities. Use it as a baseline for managing the workload and keeping involved parties aware of and accountable for meeting set milestones.
