Tasks are the engines that propel the progress of a project. A task represents an amount of work with a clear outcome. As tasks are worked on, Project calculates their effect on the overall outcome of the project. If you have done a good job of project planning, you should already have an idea of what you need to do to accomplish your project's goals. So crack your knuckles and get readyit's time to enter tasks into your project!
