Top 10 Most Downloaded Project Management Resources

Since I launched my first iteration of this PM (project management) Resources website in 1999 (over 14 years ago!),  I’ve been happily sharing free tools, articles, and more to help new project managers become more effective.  Recently I examined the statistics and compiled this list of those most frequently downloaded or read. Thanks to all of you who’ve used these and shared them with your colleagues!  And if you’re new to this site or new to PM you might want to check these out for yourself.  Enjoy!

Download PDF: 10 Steps to Project Success________________________________

1.   Ten Steps to Project Success.  This is Project Management Minimalism in a one-page PDF nutshell!

2. Project “Post Mortem” Review Questions.  This tool includes 35 starter questions (customizable) and instructions for conducting your own Post Mortem.  It’s useful for evaluating a single project or as the starting point for an organization-wide discussion of this question: “How can we manage our projects more effectively?”

 3. Worksheet: Sample Project Sign-Off Form.  Projects are, by definition, finite. And sign-offs provide tangible proof that some portion of your finite project is (finally!) completed, thus helping to mitigate rework. This sample can be used as a model for developing your own sign-off form for your project phases, deliverables, 0r project completion.
