The free project summary template was designed for professionals who need to communicate project proposals, plans or reports to upper management, clients, or other non-technical audiences. Built as a visual Gantt chart slide, the template quickly highlights the key points of a project and can be easily edited and included in PowerPoint presentations.
A clear, eye-catching project summary can be a powerful tool for project managers to secure stakeholder buy-in or keep clients and execs up to date without overloading them with extensive technical details. As high-level audiences need to make quick decisions, visual timelines or Gantt charts can help them absorb information more easily and get to the essence of the project at a glance.
Project managers and business professionals can use the free project summary template to communicate their project’s data in a more engaging way and make their point quickly, clearly and concisely. The following tips can help them get the most out of the template:
The template can be edited with new data, colors, tasks, and milestones right from inside PowerPoint, either manually or using Office Timeline’s light project management add-in to automate the process. The plugin is an easy-to-use timeline maker that enables professionals to customize and update the graphic in minutes or create their own project visuals from scratch with just a few clicks. To save even more time building high-level presentations, project managers can use Office Timeline Basic to import data from Microsoft Project or Excel and instantly turn it into a summary slide like this template.
