The concept of activity and activity list in project management

Here is all you need to know about activity and activity list in project management….




An activity is an element of project work that requires action to produce a deliverable. Activity lay the foundation for estimating, and monitoring and controlling the project work. When we talk of activities , they are what you need to do in  order to achieve a particular task. Two or more activities need to be performed before the foundation of a house is being laid.

The features….

An activity must have a time frame that we expect it to be carried out . That tells us that there is a time that we expect it to start or finish. It is also in the process of carrying out an activity that the 8/80 rule that I talked about in my previous article will come in.

Consumer budget
Another unique feature of an activity is that it must have a budget. You must know how much it is going to cost to complete that particular task. There must also be an individual that is been assigned to acheive that particular task. Once all that are missing , then it is no longer an activity.

Activity attributes…
Activity attributes contains additional activities in an activity list. The attributes describe the activities by listing the different components associated with the activities, which include responsible team members and the level of effort required.

Activity attributes are used to develop project schedules and select, order and sort out planned activities.
