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:
Make sure you have regular project review meetings where you discuss project objectives and milestones to keep your stakeholders informed and consulted
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
Use templates to save precious time when creating project visuals for your next stakeholder meetings
Office Timeline helps you quickly turn complex project data into clear PowerPoint graphics that are easy to follow, but hard to forget.
The right template is a mix of various ingredients and there are many aspects to take into consideration: your industry, company size, or project complexity. To help you get started quickly, we’ve put together a list of the best PowerPoint templates for project management – from straight-forward project plans to complex Gantt charts and strategic product roadmaps.
You can access these templates as Excel and PowerPoint files and customize them to fit the specific needs of your project. They’re free and you can download them directly, without the obligation to fill in any contact details.
For the PowerPoint templates, you can edit them manually by moving the shapes or use the Office Timeline Pro add-in to edit and update automatically. It plugs natively into PowerPoint so you can make your project visuals with just a few clicks and save them as your own personalized templates to use time and time again.
