Set a project baseline to track progress, forecast results, and outline your plan in one place from the start.
Make a project baseline in Notion to share notes and progress across teams
Our connected workspace makes project management flexible and intuitive, and it all starts with a project baseline — an initial document that sets your starting point, then keeps your roadmaps, wikis, and action items accessible and distinct as you progress.
Here’s how our tool stands out:
Customizations to fit your needs — create organized pages with custom properties.
One platform — host all the pages and docs you need without crossover.
Collaborate with ease — track tasks and monitor progress on sharable pages.
Learn how to kickstart projects with Notion
Create a team workspace in Notion.
Create a new page.
Choose from one of our project management baseline templates or start from scratch.
Populate your page with key sections, like your budget, deliverables, and deadlines.
To create a project baseline:
Determine the type of baseline you’re creating by considering variables like project scope, schedule, quality, and cost
Identify any relevant key components, like scope, objectives, project deliverables, and timeline
Determine how you’ll track progress along timelines or for deliverables
Make the plan accessible to all team members and stakeholders
Here are four examples of project baselines:
Cost baseline — specify total project cost and prices for individual phases.
Scope baseline — detail your project’s scope to decide what to include or exclude at every step.
Schedule baseline — set a project baseline schedule that specifies a start and end date for each task or phase.
Quality baseline — set quality requirements throughout the project.
Baseline a project at the beginning of the project lifecycle, before any work begins. This sets a clear foundation to build upon, minimizes unforeseen roadblocks, and makes sure you have the resources you need to succeed.
