Lesson 27: Define Activities
Let’s see all the details about the Define Activities process.
Optional Extra Activities
Note: these extra activities are optional, and not necessary for your certification.
The maximum duration of activities, as suggested in many resources, is 44 working days (~2 calendar months). PMI’s practical standard for scheduling says that activity durations should not be longer than two control periods. So, if you’re controlling the project every month (very common), then activities should not be longer than two months.
Maybe you can check the 14-Point Schedule Assessment from DCMA or the Planning and Scheduling Excellence Guide (PASEG) to familiarize yourself with some of these guidelines.
Here you can submit your questions related to the content of the course. (For other questions, use the support system). The trainer's reply will be email to you in 48 hours.
This lesson is part of the first 30% of the course, which is available for free, even without registration.
