Task Progression is a regular or proportional succession of tasks and their parts to be performed in harmony and within a planned period of time in order to accomplish their goals. It identifies a task sequence in which every single task is related to its predecessor by a set of uniform rules called task interdependence. In this regard, task progression determines a functional way of planning and performing an amount of work structured by tasks.
Progression of tasks means the act of moving tasks forward towards successful accomplishment of their goals through utilizing available resources (employees, their physical abilities, time, funds, technology, etc.). The term is used in various and different fields.
For example, in the field of project management task progression means a series of scheduled tasks of a project to be performed by human resources in the way that ensures optimal consumption of available time and minimizes the probability of performance gaps occurred. In sports, task progression refers to the principle of optimizing the level of physical activity of an athlete and determining the optimal time-frame for this activity level to reach by the athlete.
