Milestone is a term generally used in project management. It is an event that represents or shows the completion of major deliverable. According to definition milestone has duration of zero and no effort. Usually a milestone is used as a project checkpoint to validate how a project is progressing and revalidates the work.
Here we can take an example, If someone is building a house for their family, everyone talks about milestones, because nobody is familiar with the specific tasks: “The floors will be finished on Monday”, “The roof will be completed on Dec 20th “. We intuitively talk about milestones, not tasks, because we do not know how to build a house, and our friends ask us about the construction in terms of milestones: “When are you going to finish the roof?”, “When are you going to move in?”, etc
The house is the main deliverable, you are the project manager and your friends are the stakeholders. Sound familiar?
