Outcomes are achieved with tasks. A task consists of several activities to achieve the outcomes and ensure the quality requirements are met.

The task is assigned a role with responsibility for the task.

Content-related tasks are grouped as modules.

Tasks and their outcomes are structured in the project structure plan and allocated to phases and milestones. Tasks that lead to a decision end with a milestone.

Task descriptions do not replace knowledge of the methods and practices to be applied or corresponding training.
