Once approval for a project to go ahead has been given, project planning will begin.
There are a number of outputs and activities associated with this project phase. The example (see text below) provides a framework for structuring and organising these activities.
Planning projects appropriately and within budget is key to any projects success or failure. Our Project Planning template allows you to take control and take note of all areas of the planning process before beginning.
As shown in the picture above, the Mind Map template already notes down all the sections needed in a project, and allows you to concentrate solely on the brainstorming part of the process rather than wondering if there are any more topic areas to add.
