How to make a PERT chart


Gather information from stakeholders and team members

You'll need to understand key milestones, deadlines, and durations of tasks.


Select a template or start a blank diagram

Begin with your final deadline and key milestones. Then break those up into smaller objectives and tasks until your PERT chart displays all of the work to be done.


Assess your diagram for opportunities and risks

Look for potential bottlenecks, delays, or lack of resources. Make sure all dependent tasks are accounted for.


Stylize shapes and lines

Customize your colors, text, and lines to make things easy to read.


Collaborate and share

Get feedback from others, make any necessary edits, and share with the right people once it's finalized.
