Reviewing sample mission statements from project management books or from past successful projects is an excellent method of learning how to write a mission statement. It also helps you understand more than just trying to answer the questions what, for whom and how.

Project Scheduling is the process identifying and organizing the tasks of a project into a sequence of events ensuring a harmonious completion of the venture. These events are dependent on the results of their preceding activities, thus interlinking all the activities of the project. This interdependency provides for a major need of effective project scheduling.
Project Scheduling enables the project manager to identify risk points, understand the proper linkage of events, assists in resource planning and allows the Project Manager to establish goals for the team and the project.
Since all projects involve some degree of risk, a project risk management plan is necessary to define and document those procedures that will be used to manage risk throughout the life of the project. Risk can be understood as any factor that may potentially interfere with successful completion of the project. Therefore, it follows that by recognizing potential problems the project manager and core team members can avoid most, if not all, of these problems through proper actions.
The procedure used to manage risks is defined in the planning stage, documented in the project risk management plan, and then executed through the life of the project.
