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.
The project management should effectively utilize all the limited resources provided by an organization. Although some projects have all the complete resources, such as skilled people, materials, budget plan, and so on, it is still important that the project management should make the most out of this resources.
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.
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.
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.
