Task List: Who, What, and When?

You’ve decided on your project details, so now it’s time to plan for action! To take action, you will create a master task list with deadlines to move your project forward.

  • A detailed description of each task
  • Dates when each task needs to be completed
  • Who on the team will complete each task

A team brainstorm is a great way to get started. Make a list of all the tasks that will need to be done to get your project accomplished. Here’s some things to think about when making your task list:

  • Are there any items or tools you’ll need to purchase or gather?
  • Do you need to seek permission from anyone for your project or do you need any permits?
  • How you will be using your chosen campaign platform and the key messages you created ?
  • Do you need to create any campaign materials (presentations, posters, flyers)?
  • Do you need to contact participants, volunteers or outside organizations to help?

Once you make your list, put them in order of things that need to be done first, second and so on. Then assign a team member to the task and a deadline to have it completed.
