Wide range of project management tasks. As a project is unique, it typically includes collaborators who do not usually work together. In fact, the collaborators often come from different organizations, disciplines, and even countries.
While a project plan is a document that may require Excel charts but is otherwise composed in Microsoft Word. For basic projects, however, you may get away with only a Microsoft Excel document.
Using templates not only improves your efficiency, it also brings much-needed standardization to your project management process. Instead of creating documents on an ad-hoc basis, you can have a single template for every function that can be used across the organization.
If you want to complete a project on time, you need to manage it well. You also need to make sure you are within budget. Not only must you work to meet deadlines but you also have to make sure that quality does not suffer.
Think of the last project you had to manage. What documents did you have to create at launch? There would be a project charter and a communication plan, of course. You’d have a broad project plan, a work breakdown structure, and a Gantt chart. You would also have a risk register and a plan to tackle all upcoming issues.
