Templates For Project Management

21 Jun 2011 - 05:45 AM under Career, Tools | Posted by PMStudent

Ah, templates. ?Everyone wants templates for project management.

They can be great for reference. ?But watch out. ?I received this question in an email from Sudhir:

Also appreciate if I could get some samples of

Requirement Traceability Matrix,
Requirements specification,
Risk Register,
Stakeholder Register,
Progress Report,
Status Report etc

I know about these documents but Currently we don’t use any of these, so want to understand it.

The approach I take in my training at?http://learn.pmstudent.com is to demonstrate the creation of project artifacts from scratch, and explain them as I go. ?Templates are OK, but the problem is trying to learn from them. ?It is very difficult to really understand how to use them effectively unless you have created them yourself. ?Afterward, you can use other templates and adapt them as needed because you’ll understand them thoroughly.
You can certainly find examples by doing specific Google searches however. ?Just put a filetype identifier into the search.
For example the following query in Google will yield only .xls files for you:

And you can do that for any artifact, and any file extension (.doc, .xlsx, .docx, .pdf)

(screenshot above is from a template created live and from scratch in course #4 at learn.pmStudent.com)

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

    The heart of your writing while appearing agreeable in the beginning, did not sit very well with me after some time. Someplace throughout the sentences you managed to make me a believer but just for a while. I nevertheless have a problem with your jumps in logic and you might do nicely to fill in those breaks. In the event you actually can accomplish that, I would surely end up being amazed.

    I have a Blogger blog that is hooked up to my personal website. The actual blog is linked off of the homepage. I would like to know if there’s a widget or something that I can put on my website’s homepage that will show my latest blog posts. Not the whole post, but maybe just the headline and a link to go to my blog..

    Hi there, I think your website could be having web browser compatibility problems. Whenever I take a look at your website in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other than that, excellent website!
