Creating a Time Line

The Office of Quality Improvement found that creating a Time Line (also called a step chart) at the beginning of the hiring process was useful both to ensure that all necessary activities were taking place, but also to identify where activities (such as screening and letter preparation) could be done as early as possible in the process.

A variation on this Time Line is to add individuals' initials in the columns, rather than check marks, to ensure that all responsibilities have been assigned to someone.

Community through respect & civility. Excellence through diversity. Success through learning.
