“Everybody who is successful lays a blueprint out,” remarked American comedian and actor Kevin Hart. Projects in progress are no exception. It, too, requires a project management strategy (blueprint) outlining steps to stay on track and within budget. Studies document that organizations adopting project management practices are 28 times more efficient with their use of money, viz-a-viz the competition. Why? Because it involves a high level of planning, design, and documentation to spell out the specifics and actions required to dispel confusion and avoid risks during project execution, once done. However, the power and savings are enormous.


One such critical component of project management methodology is the Project Management Plan (PMP).
