In my mind – and from what I’ve been writing in the past in terms of best practices – good project management involves establishing a workable, understandable and easy to follow methodology. And, in my opinion, that involves establishing reusable processes and templates. That means reusable project planning documents, signoff/approval sheets, testing documents and many others – and…yes…project schedules. In fact, I even had a specific consulting gig where I helped a client identify common tasks in their projects and built reusable project schedule templates for them that would work for about 90% of their projects. All the PMs had to do going forward was plug some of the specialty tasks into the template and go.
