Project management templates are an essential ingredient in replicating successful projects. With Microsoft Excel’s free templates, you can turn your simple spreadsheets into powerful project management tools.
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.
A project management is a method of initiating, plan, executing, and the application of knowledge, skills, tools and techniques to achieve specific goals and meet specific success criteria.
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.
A real success is not in the completion of the project, but being able to provide a business benefit to the customer from the delivery of the project. After all, a particular project is made to provide benefits and value to the customer.
