Project plans help organize the sequence of tasks that move a QI project through the phases of a project cycle. General QI project cycle phases include problem definition, analysis, testing, implementation, sustainment and spread. QI tools ideally build upon each other, and the project plan helps consolidate the logical flow of the use of these tools throughout the project cycle.
The following resources will help you:
- Develop a project plan that illustrates the tasks and deliverables involved in project initiation, execution, and sustainment.
- Determine the appropriate timeline for completing each phase of the project (Gantt chart)
- Assign tasks/deliverables to team members to ensure project plan is on track
