Schedule Baseline Template

The Schedule Baseline is a project document that captures the approved schedule details for project activities. Throughout the project life cycle, schedule performance is measured by comparing the schedule baseline to the real performance results.

Our template captures information regarding project task and it contains all the information necessary to develop the project schedule. It’s developed to support a wide range of project types and sizes. Specifically, it:
