What are project management deliverables? The answer is that they are the outputs, products, or services that are provided upon the completion of a project. In this blog post, we'll explore the types of deliverables, why they are essential, and how tools like OneTask can help manage them efficiently.

What Are Project Management Deliverables?

Deliverables are a cornerstone of any project. These tangible or intangible outputs must be handed over to the client or stakeholder for a project to be considered complete. Deliverables can be varied, ranging from reports, documents, products, or any smaller, constituent part of the project.

Types of Deliverables

Understanding the types of deliverables helps in planning and execution. They can be broadly classified into:

  • Internal Deliverables: Managed within the project team and not delivered to the client. For example, project plans or meeting notes.
  • External Deliverables: Provided to the client or stakeholders, representing the value of the project. Examples include final reports, products, or software versions.

The Importance of Deliverables

Properly defining and managing deliverables is crucial because they:

  1. Clarify Expectations: Detailed deliverables help set clear expectations with stakeholders.
  2. Provide Milestones: They act as checkpoints during the project, ensuring that everything is on track.
  3. Assess Performance: Deliverables provide a measure of progress and performance.
