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.
A project management is divided into 5 phases, including: 1. Project conception and initiation; Phase 2. Project definition and planning; Phase 3. Project launch or execution; Phase 4. Project performance and control; Phase 5. Project close.
Borrowing pre-made templates can also ensure that you use best practices in your planning and reporting. If a template has proven to be successful in one organization, there is a good chance it will be useful in yours as well.
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”).
