Free Project Management Templates

No one ever said that managing a project was easy but thanks to the latest technology, you can change that! Estimate costs, using the resource and task estimates, enter project activities, determining return on investment possibilities and more! Think about it... what is it worth to your company to accurately reflect project costs and stay within your approved budget? To do so requires ongoing tracking and updating and that's you can do with Project Kickstart.

Project Planning Templates

The latest version of our project design templates provide an easy way to get your project up and running. Initiation into a project takes 30 minutes or less! That's it! Whether you are an IT professional or in any other position where you might need a sample plan to get the ball rolling more quickly, Project Kickstart is for you! The first step toward project planning is to use our free sample template to define your project goals. It begins with a simple question: What you are trying to achieve with your project? Next, you'll need to define the phases or major activities in the project. You'll enter the tasks that are required for each phase, and the task duration. After the tasks, it should be easy to identify the resources (the folks who are doing the work). You'll use the task information to make at least preliminary estimates regarding your staffing needs. As the project begins, any changes can be easily made. If your company requires new resources to be approved and procured, it's good to get early and accurate resource estimates to avoid delays in approval and procurement cycles. Once resources have been identified, it's time to assign those resources to the tasks and subtasks you've already entered.
