Create a time and materials deliverable

Deliverables are a major part of projects, and as such, can only be created from within a project. This approach ensures alignment between project goals and outcomes, fostering efficient collaboration and tracking. By making deliverables project-centric, VOGSY enhances accountability, progress monitoring, and teamwork. This methodology minimizes distractions and maximizes focus on value creation.

See Deliverables to learn more about this vital component of projects.

There are three types of deliverables: fixed-rate, time and materials, and subscription.

This topic explains how to create a time and materials deliverable, which means the customer has agreed to pay for the deliverable based on the resources used and/or the time expended.
