Planning relates to the use of schedules such as Gantt charts to plan and subsequently report progress within the project environment.

The process of preparing for the commitment of resources in the most effective fashion. It aims to produce a workable programme that will achieve project goals and serve as a standard against which actual progress can be measured. It defines:

1. what should be done (Activities),

2. how should activities be performed (methods),

3. who should perform each activity and with what means (resources), and

4. when the activities should be performed (sequence and timing).
