What is Project Summary Task


Project Summary Task is a short description of a project’s work effort, time length, and cost. It aims to present an opening review about the project to the team and explain in general what effort the team needs to make within what time frame and under what cost requirements. Summary task is often placed on a timeline with special labels of planned project activities and allocated financial resources.

Summary task of a project is not an executable task; it’s not to be performed. It just indicates the project’s work and cost in terms of time. It is usually added to the top level of project task hierarchy to summarize the project’s start and finish time and to show total cost and work effort of the project’s tasks.

It is a common practice to use summary tasks in those project documents (e.g. project plan, WBS, schedule, individual to-do list) that include or highlight an activity-based structure of project work. Summary tasks are not usually used in analytical, legal, financial and accounting project papers and documents, because they characterize rather a practical purpose of projects and do not focus organizational aspects.
