The one-stop resource for project management documentation and templates for all projects
The success of any project is crucially dependent on the documents produced for it. The Practical Guide to Project Management Documentation provides a complete and reliable source of explanations and examples for every possible project-related document-from the proposal, business case, and project plan, to the status report and final post-project review.
The Practical Guide to Project Management Documentation is packed with material that slashes the time and effort expended on producing new documents from scratch. Following the processes in the Project Management Institute's PMBOK(R) Guide, this one-stop, full-service book also offers tips and techniques for working with documents in each project process. Documentation for several project/client scenarios is addressed, including internal and externally contracted projects. A single project-the construction of a water theme park-is used as the case study for all the document examples.
An included CD-ROM provides all the documents from the book as Microsoft Word(r) files. Readers can use these as a framework to develop their own project documents.
The Practical Guide to Project Management Documentation is an unmatched reference for the numerous documents essential to project managers in all industries.
