A good project need a good plan. So, today we should learn you how to make a plan for a successful project.
First step. Explain the project plan to key stakeholders and discuss its key components. One of the most misunderstood terms in project management, the project plan is a set of living documents that can be expected to change over the life of the project. Like a roadmap, it provides the direction for the project. And like the traveler, the project manager needs to set the course for the project, which in project management terms means creating the project plan. Just as a driver may encounter road construction or new routes to the final destination, the project manager may need to correct the project course as well.
Next, define roles and responsibilities. For a good project, you must know what thing sould make every people.
Then, hold a kickoff meeting. The kickoff meeting is an effective way to bring stakeholders together to discuss the project. We present you some of the topics that might be included in a kickoff meeting:
