Like most consultants, I live in a project-oriented world. Occasionally, I am dealing with larger projects which justify the use of enterprise level project management tools such as Microsoft Project. However, I frequently find myself involved with smaller sized projects where those enterprise level tools are a burden and an overkill. Starting a few years ago, I began developing my own Excel-based project management template which I have successfully used to help organize projects of various size and scope. I have refined it to the point where I feel comfortable making this available to the general public which is what I am doing now. I refer to this template as my “Rolling Timeline” and it’s available as a .XLSX file here: Rolling Timeline Template v1.3. Read on to learn more.
