Project Management Templates

Use these free PowerPoint and Excel templates to create a professional project roadmap for your next stakeholder meeting

PowerPoint templates for project management

In recent years, projects have become the norm in every business field – from IT to construction, from marketing to legal or education. But managing projects that come in all shapes and sizes is no easy task. In fact, it’s so difficult that almost two thirds of projects result in failure, mostly due to ineffective communication, poor project planning, and the lack of clear goals.

So what can you do to keep your project on track and increase the chance of success? Here are three quick tips that can help you avoid project failure:

  1. Make sure you have regular project review meetings where you discuss project objectives and milestones to keep your stakeholders informed and consulted

  2. Walk (or dial) into these meetings with a professional timeline, Gantt chart or project roadmap so that everyone has a clear overview of how the project is doing

  3. Use templates to save precious time when creating project visuals for your next stakeholder meetings
