  • Project Management Plan defines how the project is executed, monitored, controlled, and closed
  • Contents vary depending on complexity of the project
  • The Project Management Plan integrates Project Baselines & Subsidiary Plans
  • Project Baselines
    • Scope Baseline (what we are supposed to do)
    • Schedule Baseline (how long it should take)
    • Cost Baseline (how much we can spend)
  • Subsidiary Plans
    • Scope Management Plan
    • Requirements Management Plan
    • Schedule Management Plan
    • Cost Management Plan
    • Quality Management Plan
    • Resource Improvement Plan
    • Communications Management Plan
    • Risk Management Plan
    • Procurement Management Plan
    • Stakeholder Engagement Plan
  • Optional Subsidiary Plans
    • Change Management Plan (describes how change requests will be handled)
    • Configuration Management Plan (describes how project information will be recorded, in order to ensure that the project’s result remains consistent)
  • Plan can also include
    • Performance Measurement Baseline (scope-schedule-cost plan, which we use to compare actual project performance against)
    • Project Life Cycle (for multi-phase projects, this lists each phase)
    • Development Approach (tells us whether the project will be predictive, iterative, agile, or a combination of the three)
    • Management Reviews (tells us when the stakeholders will review progress to determine how the project is performing)
  • Project Management Plan should be consistent with the Program Management Plan (if there is a program)
