Quality Checklist

Quality doesn’t just happen, it’s a product of proper project management. Use a quality checklist to ensure quality is planned into your project.

A lack of quality control makes it impossible to guarantee quality in your projects. By implementing a Quality Checklist for all your projects, you can "check" each item off as you develop your project plan. Rest easy knowing that you have all of your bases covered!

Quality Checklist - 4.0 out of 5 based on 25 votes


A project quality checklist is a tool used to aid the project team in ensuring they consider all aspects of project and/or process quality. The purpose of well-planned and repeatable quality management is to ensure the delivery of products or services which are acceptable to the customer based on some agreed upon standard of quality. To help achieve consistency many organizations use a standard checklist to verify that all quality considerations have been met during the project planning, execution, and monitoring/controlling phases. Based on the project some checklists may differ but it is often advantageous to utilize a standard checklist when appropriate to achieve consistency.
