CPR How 2 Series: Vehicle for Project Deliverables

Updated: Dec 4, 2023


Project management involves the planning and organizing of a company's resources to move a specific task, event, or duty toward completion. From point A to point Z of the project, every project needs a plan that outlines how things will get off the ground, how they will be built, and how they will finish. An effective project management plan lays the groundwork for defining the goals and objectives of the project and determining when the various project components are to be completed and by whom. In addition, project management emphasizes the importance of quality control. Quality control checks to ensure completed components meet the set standard.


In today's market, there are several ways to track project deliverables. The below applications are courtesy of Masterclass (2021).

  1. Gantt chart: A Gantt chart is a horizontal visual bar graph that shows your project goals, tasks, timeline, and milestones over time. This chart lets you visualize the project and focus on its essential components.

  2. Mockup: A mockup is a draft of a website that offers an approximation of the site’s functionality and look and feel. A mockup can also refer to a physical product created for demonstrations, presentations, or promotional purposes.

  3. Mood board: A mood board, sometimes called an inspiration board, is a tool to help you hone your visual ideas at the start of a project. This collage of images, material samples, color palettes, and sometimes descriptive words and typography can help guide your work.

  4. Pitch deck: A pitch deck is a presentation that provides an overview of the project to potential investors or critical stakeholders. This visual document provides investors with essential information about your business plan, product or services, fundraising needs, and critical metrics like valuation, target market, and financial goals.

  5. Project charter: A project charter is a document that outlines the entire project management plan, including objectives, deliverables, roles, and responsibilities.

  6. Project schedule: A project schedule is a timeline that details when milestones need to be completed. A project milestone is a checkpoint that tracks the progress of a project.

  7. Prototype: A prototype is a mock-up of a product developed during the early essential phase of product development and the design process.

  8. Statement of work: A statement of work is a legal contract between parties (usually client and vendor) to outline expectations for a project.

  9. SWOT analysis: A SWOT analysis is a four-point analysis that businesses use to evaluate internal and external positives and negatives. The first two components of a SWOT analysis—strengths and weaknesses—refer to internal factors within an organization. The latter two components of a SWOT analysis—opportunities and threats—represent external factors that might affect the organization.

  10. Wireframe: A wireframe is a visual guide or blueprint created by user experience designers (UX designers) to show the basic functionality of websites, mobile apps, or any screen-based product that involves a user interface.

  11. Work breakdown structure (WBS): A WBS is a plan that organizes the work of a project into manageable segments.
