A project plan outlines every aspect of a project’s objectives, execution, and desired outcomes. The project plan is the most important element of the project management process. The project plan, depending upon the size of your project may be simple or complex, a single document or consist of several subsidiary plans. Either way, without these plans you have no baseline to measure project progress and project activities against. You have no way to determine the variances between planned and actuals.
The project plan does not just address the schedule and costs. Planning must touch upon every aspect of the project from the scope to the risks that must be managed, to how we will communicate and manage our teams.
A project plan is a written document or set of documents. It is a document that you create in collaboration with your project team and that must be aligned to the expectations of your stakeholders.
This webinar will introduce the concept of planning and how it is conducted. During the webinar, we will examine the contents of each subsidiary plan, how those plans are created, and the critical baseline measurements that result from each plan.
