Save Time With Tools + Templates

Quantity Tracking System (Green Projects)

by Stefano Pittaluga

This template is built for construction project control managers who need to keep track of quantities installed onsite and—with the same tool—produce a weekly/monthly report that supplies management with quantitative feedback about project status.

Weekly Project Planner

by Chirag Sheth

This simple project planner is for PMs to manage their IT/non-IT project schedules. Project managers just need to enter requirement/module names and estimated hours for each, define weekly deliverables by entering hours into each cell, and highlight them with a different color to generate a visually helpful planner.

A quantitative estimate for calculating the monetary value translates the risk into hard currency.

Stop Being Scared of Spreadsheets!

by Jirí Skrivánek

Scared of spreadsheets? Don't be! They are a necessary and valuable tool in the project manager's arsenal. This article and its accompanying template are not a step-by-step tutorial.
