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.
