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.
There are a number of project management templates online, but few centrally organized resources. To help you out, we collected templates from dozens of websites, curated the best ones, and shared them below.
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”).
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.
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.
