Overview of Program Schedule




What is the purpose or value?

This will give you a centralised report by getting all the important milestones and data in one place. Don't wait until the end of the month to receive milestone updates; the program will be transparent and visible at all times. Gain insight into the activities and milestones of the previous month, as well as what is planned for the upcoming months or quarter. This will help you effectively prepare and identify opportunities to contribute value to the program.

We can use the bar chart above, which will tell us how many milestones are planned for completion in that month.

Filter milestones up and down, and we can see the slippage back to their baseline

Step 2: When the Filter menu appears, you can begin filtering the Project, Point of Contact, Phase, Year Range, and Milestone.
