Work plans are complex documents that contain procedures, rules, and timelines to give a clear idea of the project scope at hand. They can also cover resources, expected challenges, and relevant metrics.

Work plans tend to change with project progress, introducing new components or opening up new possibilities. When you’re creating—or updating—a work plan, it helps to remain flexible and open to creative exploration.

A work plan outlines your goals and what actions you need to take to hit that project goal. Whether you’re working on a project, product, or concept, the work plan is the underlying structure that allows you and your team to identify and meet your milestones.

Work plans are designed to anticipate potential struggles along the way. But they should also adapt to new changes and unpredictable variables. You know, the whole “expect the best, prepare for the worst” thing.

Planning is the cornerstone of any successful work plan. So is reacting and iterating. FigJam makes all of it easy with free project work plan templates that encourage constant collaboration.

If you’re wondering how to create a work plan template, begin with a collaborative brainstorming session that brings everyone’s ideas to the table. After that, whittle down your template work plan so that it contains the brightest ideas and non-negotiable components. Next, map out the deliverables and deadlines and create a project schedule for success.

Your work plan maps your team’s journey—and journeys come with detours and roadblocks—so feel free to refer back to it and revise as needed.
