Create the Rescue Schedule
"Rebuild the project plan given the definition and boundaries of the new phases or segments (for example, x1, x2, and x3, which were described previously). This document is going to be needed to convince everyone involved in the project to buy into the new direction of the initiative. The plan must have the following attributes:
- Detailed You should break tasks down to a maximum duration of half a day
- Clear This should be easy to read and understand. You are going to use this document as a tool of conversation with project team members, the business community, and key stakeholders. It is not going into a drawer after being written.
- Trackable This will need to be updated frequently, sometimes several times a day, to follow the project.
- Modifiable The plan will need to be modified and adjusted to reach the target as new information is learned."
