Project management templates

Here you find project management templates and other material that you can use in your own projects. It is what I use in my projects. For instance, an easy-to-use project plan template that can be edited in Excel.

1. Project plan (Excel)

My project plan is a simple column based template where you can ‘paint’ your project timeline using different colors. The great thing about it: it can easily be shared with other people as it requires Excel only. Be sure to read the guide on how to create a project plan in Excel.

2. To-do list (Excel)

Whether you call it to-do list or open point list: it doesn’t matter. It’s your main file as a project manager. In this template you record all tasks that you and your team have to perform.

3. Absence overview (Excel)

A challenge for any new project is the allocation of resources.  The people in your team won’t be able to dedicate 100% of their time to your project, as they have other commitments too. And sometimes people are off for holidays. How can you easily plan your activities?

The solution is to create an absence overview for your team. It allows you to see with one glance who is available on a specific day and who isn’t. Very useful for scheduling of workshops and other meetings!
