Task List: Who, what and when?

Now that you have decided on key strategies of your campaign and determined your goals, it’s time to put your plan into action! Your team needs a master task list with objectives and deadlines to move your project forward! It is essential that your task list is as detailed as possible and include:

  • Detailed description of each task
  • Dates that each task needs to be completed
  • Who on the team will complete each task

Your project may have many different parts that can seem daunting at times. A task list will help organize your project into manageable sections and keep your team on track to successfully reach your goals.  It is important to keep in mind the different phases of your project when writing your task list. This will help your project be more thought out and organized!  Check out the drop down below for a few example tasks.
