Tasks are assigned to people and they have an expected completion date or due date. And they tend to be associated with your skillset and expertise. So for example, technical tasks are assigned to technical people. Designer tasks are assigned to designers and so on. An example of a task would be: Create a mockup Goals are more at the project level and are pretty much the project objectives, so what the project is trying to achieve. You can of course have goals at the team or individual level, but on projects, goals tend to be set at the project level. An example of a goal would be: Enhance the student experience Deliverables are specific things the project is delivering during or at the end of execution. These are generally bigger pieces of work that are completed after completing a group of tasks (not just one). An example of a deliverable would be: A chat function in the new student portal So in this example the project as a whole would be the new student portal, but to get there you need to deliver several things, which require the completion of several tasks. 1 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Nike Fisher READING, United Kingdom (UK) 0 Questions 5 Answers 1 Best Answers 44 Points View Profile Nike Fisher Hatchling Added an answer on May 12, 2019 at 3:03 pm Simply put, project tasks are activities that must be undertaken within a certain time frame to achieve a project goal, and a project culminates to a deliverable which can be a product/service to meet customer needs. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
