Too many projects lack sufficient planning; and if they have it, the plans lack flexibility for those things in implementation that are likely to change. On this web site, in section Planning Phase and its sub-sections, we give an overview over the steps and elements of the project planning process that help to create sufficient, yet flexible enough project plans. The following paper combines those project planning steps and elements into one pdf-file, ready for download.
We are expanding this sub-section. So, should you have comments, recommendations, suggestions for improvements, or additional tools or templates, please let us know: mailto:email@example.com
