Project Plan Template & Sample

For complex projects, it’s helpful to have a written plan that lays out “who will do what by when,” including interim deadlines for smaller components.

Use this project plan template to:

  • Clearly define roles
  • Break the project up into smaller component pieces
  • Create a timeline for completion
  • Track progress on the project
  • Embed equity and inclusion throughout
