When are project templates needed?
The first thing to realize about project templates, is that not every business will be able to take complete advantage. This is especially true in younger companies will less process and smaller teams, who constantly tackle vastly different projects with different activities.Project templates really show their benefit from companies who run similar projects repeatedly on a day-to-day basis. For example, a company who builds websites could have a template that outlines the same set of milestones & requirements that must be applied to every website they build.
In a scenario like this, an employee can create a template that will automatically create new projects with a set of predefined milestones, when they milestones should occur, and even some activities that always occur during certain phases of a project.
What do project templates offer?
Using a project template provides two primary benefits:
- Saving Time: When you can create all of your milestones and requirements with a single click, project management time can be greatly reduced.
- Reducing Errors: Certain activities and steps will never be missed when a project team is always working from the same set of milestones and activities.
