Having a visual project timeline that clearly communicates the important milestones and tasks is an essential tool for successful planning or project management. Project timelines outline the major deliverables of a project in a chronological sequence. This helps all project resources and stakeholders see what deliverables need to be accomplished next and by what date.
This free project timeline template was designed to help project managers and planners visualize all the critical project actions, deadlines and events from start to finish.
