I am new to project managment. I am trying to apply a task chart for different activities for my personal life as a "project". The chart has different areas, goals, taks, and schedule.
Pherhaps you could help me based on your experience on different projects.
Sometimes days or weeks after a task is scheduled , you realize that it's going to be part of a new bigger task and/or that is composed of different smaller tasks with well defined dates.
Suposse I scheduled task A . and I later realize that what I need to achieve the goal is not just A but A+B+C+D. And I have to assign dates to each one.
By now I just keep the new tasks as changes and comments of the original task A.
So I wonder what is going to be the best practice in project managment to deal with that change.
I don't know if just change the name of the original task in the chart so it represents all the different tasks it has now. for example change it to : "task ABCD". an keep the aditional tasks BCD and its dates and comments as part of "Task ABCD".
Or create a whole new "bigtask" . define better each subtask , write the change somewhere. and move the original task into it.
My concern is that a couple of weeks later I have a clear view exactly what was the progress, the steps done, why it toke more time etc. and the best way to visualize that.
note: if you have specific bibliography I'll appreciate that you share it.
