Once downloaded, edit them with your own details and export in your chosen format. If you don’t have Excel or Word, you can use LibreOffice as an open-source alternative. Alternatively, upload the file to your Google MyDrive account.
Unsurprisingly, most PM templates are made in MS Excel. A few text-heavy ones use MS Word. To use these templates, simply download them from the links below. Direct file links are marked specifically. In some cases, you will have to give up your email address in exchange for the file (marked as “Email/Registration required”).
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.
While a project manager is a professional who plans and organizes resources and personnel. They must make sure they complete the project on time and within budget. They must also ensure that the project meets the requirements of the business. Project managers exist in all industries and every type of organization. They may be contractors, managers, employees, or independent consultants.
