The original chart for this whole idea was more simple when I first made it. Over the years it’s grown and changed, but the core concept remains the same. Here are those earlier versions.
In this version, I flattened all the different tracks. It was designed to be printed up like a banner and mounted on an office wall. Each level had a stick arrow with its name that could be placed anywhere along the timeline to mark its status.
These next images can be saved and printed if desired. The first one is the larger, full-length chart. The remaining images are each individual checkpoint (Pre-Production, Pre-Alpha, Alpha, and Beta/Release Candidate).
