PROJ-630: Planning II: Schedule/Budget/Procurement. In project plans, you will see activities that represent deliverables with their durations and sequence. To establish sequence, the relationships between tasks need to be determined. Can tasks start at the same time or do they have to follow each other? Tasks that start at the same time have start-to-start relationships. Tasks that follow each other have finish-to-start relationships. Both relationships are very common in project scheduling. Once durations and sequencing are known, the dates for the schedule can be established.

Upon successful completion of the course material, you will be able to:

  • Apply a biblical perspective to sequencing and relationships.

Background Information

Relationships are important for project scheduling, but also for personal life. People you work with on a daily basis will expect you to spend personal time with them and build relationships. An example of relationships in scripture is 1 Corinthians 13—a favorite at wedding ceremonies. Love is the theme.

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things.
1 Corinthians 13:4–7

Further, based upon Proverbs and Psalms, we find that the sequence of our path is established from the Lord and our role is commitment. A project plan will fall apart if people do not commit to completion on time. Similarly, the same is true about commitment to repentance and following what Jesus has for your life.

The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.
Proverbs 16:9

You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
Psalm 16:11

Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.
Proverbs 19:21
