It requires a great deal of patience to recreate a project timeline and make so anyone can understand it.
I have found that removing emotion and sticking with just the facts is the best way to go. It is helpful to have pictures, video clips and names and dates of people you have talked to during the process.
So far the most time consuming effort has been to scan in all documents and invoices into the computer and back them up on CD.
The second step was to make sure the checks written agreed with the invoices presented and it all matched the bank statements. Using Microsoft Excel has greatly simplified this process while ensuring accuracy.
I am on the third step right now which is to put this all together in one package for easy review. I have the facts. All I can do now is present them and see how my work is received.
