SharePoint Geoff has a SharePoint 2010 Deployment Microsoft Project file (MPP) available for download that lists nearly every step imaginable for deploying SharePoint 2010. From identifying team leaders to installing software to monitoring web performance, it's got a ton of things covered. It's not a tailored solution, especially for migrations, but it's a great place to start.
