Developing a Project Plan

If you have a great idea for a project you would like to implement in your organization, you likely will need to write a project plan to present it to your fellow workers or your boss. A project plan is a comprehensive plan about what you want to do and how. It is a great chance to show that you are familiar with the topic and that you have thought through what you want to propose. It also gives you a chance to see if you have thought of everything you will need and if there are any risks or problems you might have overlooked before.

Writing a project plan is a very helpful tool to get your thoughts organized and develop a good outline for the planned project. The project plan can be used in different circumstances, presenting it to your own organization, to your target group or even use it to write a proposal for funding based on it. It is also the first step to identify possible challenges and to see if your project idea has the potential to be implemented.
