Project Charter Template
Unfortunately, many people think of the project charter as an administrative hoop they must jump through to get their project approved. Therefore, many charters are written hastily with little thought. The charter provides a picture of where you are going, why you are going there, who will be impacted, top risks, and who is going to help you. This is a digital download (.docx file).

Stakeholder Analysis Template
Projects often get into trouble not because of technical issues but because of people issues. Individuals, groups, and organizations may help or harm your efforts. Smart project managers identify, analyze, and plan for stakeholders early in their projects and regularly review and update their analysis and plans. This simple stakeholder analysis template allows you to capture stakeholders, level of power, level of influence, interest, and concerns. This is a digital download (.xlsx file). Nothing will be shipped.
Risk Management Plan Template
How will you and your team identify and evaluate risks? Who will be involved? How will you develop response plans? Which risks will you respond to? How often will you review your risks and seek to identify new risks? This is a digital download (.docx file). Nothing will be shipped.
Risk Register Template
Project managers constantly think about project risks – both threats and opportunities. It's challenging to keep everything in your head. That's why you need a risk register, a central repository to capture and maintain your risk information. This is a digital download (.xlsx file). Nothing will be shipped.
Communication Plan Template
Ninety percent of a project manager's job is communication. Are you thinking ahead about your audience, how you will communicate, how often, and the methods you will use? This is a digital download (.docx file). Nothing will be shipped.
Meeting Agenda Template
Studies often reveal that 50% of meetings are a waste of time. Why? One of the key reasons is due to poor planning. Meeting facilitators should define and distribute an agenda prior to the meetings. The agenda should include items such as meeting roles (e.g., facilitator and scribe), the purpose of the meeting, agenda items in the order you wish to cover, the time allotted to each item, and who will present each item. This is a digital download (.docx file). Nothing will be shipped.
Meeting Minutes Template
People often make a major mistake in the creation of meeting minutes -- they try to capture every word that is spoken. Minutes don't have to be complicated or time-consuming. Simply include four things: Risk, Action Items, Issues, and Decisions. This is a digital download (.docx file). Nothing will be shipped.
Decision Register Template
How many times have you heard someone make a significant project decision but no one summarized and captured it? Later in the project, someone challenges the decision. Questions start to surface: Who made the decision? Did the decision maker have the authority to make the decision? What data or information was used to make the decision? Wise project managers have their antenna up, listening for important decisions. Once the decisions are made, validate and capture the decisions. This is a digital download (.xlsx file).
