How to write a project management plan?

10 easy steps how to write a project management plan

01. Discuss the project with the key stakeholders

Collect, understand, and agree their requirements. The "what" and the "why" 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.

02. Create a scope document

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. Divide the scope into easy-to-manage packages and further break them down into activities.

03. Create a detailed project schedule

Now that the scope of the project has 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.

04. Define roles, responsibilities and resources

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.

05. Create the project budget

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.

06. Define and describe the communications process

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.

07. Develop a project quality management plan

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.

08. Now do a risk assessment

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.

09. Develop monitor and control strategy

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

10. Obtain approval

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

What do buyers say about the template set?

Very decent work, complete, good support, amazingly cheap

Rated 5 out of 5

I have to admit that I struggled with myself whether or not I should spend money on something that you can apparently get for free elsewhere.
In the end I decided to buy and I don’t regret it. The set is very complete and all templates are well geared for each other. Templates are very easy to use and I received uncomplicated support quickly. I ordered a few additional project-specific custom made templates, which I received very quickly and which were just as easy to use.
Possibly I could have found and used free templates, but they would probably be less geared to each other, less or no support and from different sources. The associated additional effort on my part would have cost me a few extra hours of work, so I am more than happy with the price paid.
Absolutely recommendable!

Dear Steve,
Thank you for your trust, business and of course for your very positive comment. It gives me motivation to improve my templates further, to add more templates and of course I am still available for support at any time.

I haven’t regretted buying your templates a couple of weeks ago.
There are similarly priced packages on the market that contain more documents. However, after taking a closer look, I realized that the other packages often contain many documents twice that only differ in design. After some online research, I found a couple of worldwide projects you managed, so I was sure that, by buying your templates, I would benefit from your many years of experience too.
I am completely happy with my templates and can absolutely recommend them.
