If you want to complete a project on time, you need to manage it well. You also need to make sure you are within budget. Not only must you work to meet deadlines but you also have to make sure that quality does not suffer.
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”).
The purpose of a project management are as follows: Define project goals and objectives; Set guidelines and rules to be followed; Coordinate and control the many, complex activities of projects; Foresee or predict as many risk and problems that are imminent; Develop an action plan, organize, and control activities that are crucial in the completion of a project; Outline steps and quality plans to achieve the project goals; Determining the budget and time required for each of the daily plans, as well as the project as a whole; Provide a successful project despite the risk and problems.
It is inevitable that all projects will run into some problem statements and major odds that are beyond the controls of a project manager that result in a huge step back of a project. However, that is the most import thing to consider as this problems and step backs will be used to make better projects in the future.
