What is a Project Plan?

Answer: A project plan is any kind of organised thought process to get a project done.  In our case, we specifically mean the host of written documents that many projects need to ensure the entire project team are on the same page and to control progress and unexpected events.

Often these sorts of documents are needed to show what will be delivered

  • Project Charter
  • Stakeholder Register & Requirements
  • Scope Statement & Exclusions
  • Schedule
  • Budget
  • Team Register
  • Design Drawings

Then these next parts are important to communicate how the project will be managed..

  • Project Management Plan
  • Stakeholder Management Plan
  • Scope Management Plan
  • Cost Management Plan
  • Schedule Management Plan
  • Quality Management Plan
  • Resource Management Plan
  • Risk Management Plan
  • Procurement Management Plan
  • Communications Plan

Can Grapple help me build a Gantt Chart?

Answer: In a word, no.  Grapple helps you build project plans which are more word based documents, and helps you automate the complicated sequence of documents and approvals, as well as reducing the effort it takes to maintain a set of project documents.


You've mentioned workflows - when are they coming?

Answer: We are working hard on the workflow functionality and hope to have it live by April.
