I recently listened to Kirk Bowman and Susan Fennema of Mighty Data discuss project management at their company.

 

I thought it would be a good exercise for me to think through and write down my process - or, what I think is my process. I thought this might be a way to quickly identify milestones.

 

How do you identify milestones for your projects?

 

Here is my list:

 

  1. Create tables and fields
  2. Organize layout structure
    1. Folders
      1. None (user layouts are not in a folder)
      2. Modal
      3. Mobile
      4. Reports
      5. Data
      6. Admin
      7. Developer
      8. Sandbox
    2. Layouts
      1. User layouts - detail
      2. User layouts - list
      3. User layouts - modal
      4. User layouts - iPad detail
      5. User layouts - iPad list
      6. User layouts - iPhone detail
      7. User layouts - iPhone list
      8. User layouts - Web Direct detail
      9. User layouts - Web Direct list
      10. Data layouts (one for every table)
  1. Design/structure relationship graph
  2. Build value lists
  3. Scripts 1 - import utility scripts
  4. Scripts 2 - create navigation scripts
    1. Menu navigation
    2. Related record navigation
  5. Scripts 3 - business logic script
