Project Management Checklist: Before You Start

The “Project Management Checklist” is our guarantee that the project will be kicked off in the best way possible, and no important issue will be omitted. The list has been divided into several fields, though there is a chronological feel to it as well, the sequence is not necessarily set in stone.


"We’ll be honest with you: this project management checklist was first created for our internal use. However, we’ve decided there’s too much solid advice for it to stay on Google Drive."
