I bought the templates some time ago. Overall, I am very happy with it and I am glad that I was able to use these templates as the basis for my new project.
It would have taken me many hours to create it all myself. In this respect, the price is more than fair.
When I didn’t know what to do next, I received an answer to my email within less than a day, despite the difference in time zones. Thanks to the support !!!

“We are a medium-sized construction company in North America. We are very focused on efficiency and the best quality to meet or exceed our customers’ expectations.
We acquired the template set because we wanted to revise and optimize our processes. The template set helped us a lot and improved our project planning drastically, which until then had primarily focused on costs and time planning.
The individual plans are very detailed and have raised us to a new planning level.”

10 Steps How to Write a Project Management Plan

The project planning process can be difficult, especially with increasing project complexity. If you have never written a project management plan before, you will ask yourself how to write a project management plan.

According to a Forbes study, 25% of technology projects fail early, which is bad statistics for project managers. The good news is that there are ways to plan a successful project launch in a short time. Project managers need to understand the simple steps of how to write a project management plan.

Collect, understand, and agree their requirements. The โ€œwhatโ€ and the โ€œwhyโ€ are thus defined and agreed. The requirements must be recorded in writing in the order of their importance and the influence of the stakeholder. Without this clear agreements, specifications, tasks and deadlines that you set for your project plan will have no basis.

After the requirements for the project and the desired results have been recorded, it is time to create a project scope document in which the individual project elements are listed. All elements must be described clearly, completely and unambiguously.

After requirements, milestones and the scope of the project have been set, it is time to insert project information into a schedule. A Gantt chart is a practical tool that you can use to easily visualize the project timeline. It is an instrument that gives you a complete overview of the project progress, the scope of work and the dependencies.

Resources are the people, equipment and material that are required to complete your project. Particular caution and care is required here. Delays in project execution are very often due to the fact that production rates and therefore the number of resources required are not adequately estimated. You also have to consider where you get the resources from, when you need them and, depending on the availability, when you have to order them. Describe this part with all the details in the project procurement plan.

Now that you know exactly what to do, how long it will take and which and how many resources you need, you can now create a cost plan relatively easily. Provide a certain contingency and present it separately.

McKinsey says employees spend almost 20% of their time looking for and collecting information. In addition, inefficient communication and collaboration are two of the main causes of stress at work. If stakeholders and employees have to constantly search through series of emails or constantly ask for updates, they become frustrated and their motivation drops. It is therefore extremely important to collect all data and information in a controlled environment, where they are easily accessible and can be kept up to date. In addition, to maintain a good relationship, it is essential to agree on report content and deadlines and to adhere strictly.

Develop strategies to ensure the quality of both the end product and all individual processes for manufacturing the product. Also describe how you intend to constantly improve the processes.

Go through all the previous points again and evaluate with your team what could go wrong. Think about how likely a risk is and what the impact on the schedule, costs and project product could be. Develop strategies for dealing with each individual risk.

Go back to each of the above and describe how you want to monitor and control each plan.

Now that your plan is complete, let your project sponsor approve it and authorize you to carry out the project.

Never ask yourself again how to write a project management plan.
