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. Read the guide on how to use the project plan template.
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. Project budget (Excel)
The project budget template I use in all my projects. Plan and actual values can be recorded in one file, and you can make nice evaluations. Learn how to use the project budget template and download the template there.
4. Stakeholder analysis
Perform a stakeholder analysis at the start of your project. This way you know whom you need to talk to and who’s got an active role in the project. Read my guide on how to perform a stakeholder analysis. Document your findings in the stakeholder analysis template.
5. 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!
