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.
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”).
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.
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.
Creating all these documents from scratch would waste a monumental amount of time. This is why every project manager usually has a trusted arsenal of project management templates.
