Project Management Tools Increase in Knowledge Network

Patrick Avery

The number of Knowledge Network resources focusing on project management is increasing. In addition to yesterday's inclusion of an excerpt from "Agile Project Management," this Project Status Template was uploaded this week. Serving as a checklist, this project management tool lists the items companies should include in a status report: top problems/issues, accomplishments, schedule status, budget/labor hour status, deliverables status, project risks and project level action items.


Here's a quick overview of some of the PM resources available in the Knowledge Network.


Project Management Guidebook

This guidebook is designed to simplify the management processes required to manage a project successfully from end to end. The book teaches readers how to initiate, plan, execute and close projects properly. You'll also learn how to manage time, cost, quality, change, risk and issues. And finally, you'll learn how to manage staff, customers and suppliers.


Project Management Toolkit

This toolkit, uploaded by a project manager with more than 30 years of experience, gives users several tools to manage a successful project.


Project Risk Plan

This Project Risk Plan Template outlines the foreseeable project risks and provides a set of actions to be taken to both prevent the risk from occurring and reduce the impact of the risk should it eventuate.


IT Business Edge's Project Proposal Template

This simple, three-page template covers the basics of top-level project justification. Key points covered in the basic form include business needs met by the proposed project, high-level functionality as envisioned by the business, post-launch operational costs and considerations, key assumptions and corresponding risk, and sign-off by project sponsors and key senior managers.

This is perfect timing for me, I am about to start a new project with a new team and I think this kind of software would be in handy for good project development.
