Hjartarson, Paul. Note. Project Design Checklist.

A project design checklist developed by Paul H for the winter 2013’s HuCo530: Project Design and Management. The checklist is adapted from James P. Lewis’s Project Planning, Scheduling & Control: A Hands-On Guide to Bringing Projects in on Time and on Budget and expands on Lynne Siemens’s checklist. Hjartarson's checklist consists of a series of components and questions associated with designing and managing a digital humanities project. The sections are broken down into these necessary components:

  • A clear, concise statement defining the project, which has been prepared and reviewed for according to involved parties’ consensus.
  • Measurable and specific performance criteria developed.
  • A work breakdown schedule developed to the level of being able to give accurate estimates of costs, resources, and working time for all project activities.
  • A statement of project scope that defines limits of what will and will not be developed.
  • Tangible deliverables broken down into specific milestones.
  • Identified risks and contingency plans.
  • The project plan has been prepared with input and/or participation from the individuals that must implement it.
  • The project plan must be reviewed and signed off by stakeholders and distributed to contributors.
  • A control system must be established to assess progress.
  • Individuals have been selected for assignment to the project.
  • The project has been planned to manageable detail.
