What is Task Execution?
Task execution is a consistent process of doing planned tasks and producing expected results by one individual or a group of individuals joint into a team, in compliance with preset requirements and expectations. It determines a sequence of tasks assigned to the team for implementation. Every task has a range of preset parameters or attributes that define execution sequence and implementation time. For example, priority and due date are attributes preset prior to implementation to determine in what sequence tasks are supposed to be executed and within what time limits.
Task execution is a synonym to task implementation. In order to execute or implement tasks there should be a well-defined plan of actions. Such a plan is called a task execution (implementation) plan. It is usually created by decision makers and carried out by a group of performers. For example, in terms of project management, a task execution plan refers to a formal document that determines certain tasks and their attributes (like priority, status, dependency, etc.) defined by a project manager and assigned to an implementation team. Such a plan becomes a component of general plan for managing the project.
