The next part of the course project is preparing a project plan. A project plan will pull all the other activities and documents you created together in to a complete project management plan. You will use information from the project charter and information you gathered from the project team.
Typically, the Project Plan will have the following:
- Governance (Responsibility of team members)
- Scope Management
- Time Management
- Cost Management
- Communication Management
- Quality Management
- Implementation and Transition
- Risk Management
- Issues Management
- Integrated Change Control
- Procurement Management Plan
- Human Resource Management
Prepare at minimum a 2-page Project Plan for the project you selected. Be sure to include all the details so anyone on your project team can understand the goals of the project.
Here is a Project Plan example. By design, this is a very detailed document. This functions as your roadmap throughout the project so detail is necessary. The more you do during this phase the better prepared you will be as a project manager.
