Sample of a Gate/Milestone Map

Don't Get Caught In Group Think

Below is a sample of a gate/milestone map. When creating your own map, keep in mind:

  • Define the “swim lanes” for each function within your organization
  • The gates need to be clear go/no go decision points
  • Each tag on the swim lane is a clear deliverable
  • You may want to color code the tags (green=on track, yellow=concern, red=late)
  • The objective is to give management a one page update on a given program
