Document this critical path as a list of steps (6-8 steps seems like
the right amount). You may revise your critical path, as things
develop. In these cases, you may even have to backtrack (see below,
in phase 4). In light of this, be sure not to make the list of steps
too long. Also, make sure the list of steps is not too open-ended;
instead, define the steps as much as you can, making the demonstrable

find that you need to revise it. Do these revisions, and document how
