It’s the job within the job—in addition to designing and developing amazing training solutions, instructional designers often must also plan, organize, and manage their projects. This can be a daunting task, as projects have many components and moving pieces to stay on top of in addition to the actual design and development work.

In this session, you will learn how to create a project plan that will grow and flex to your project needs using something you probably already have access to—Microsoft Excel. You’ll explore a project plan that was used for a large-scale project in order to see practical real-world examples. In addition, you will also learn how to track and organize project information such as budget, communications, stakeholders, and more. You’ll leave this session with a clear understanding of how to develop and maintain a project plan, and with practical tips you can immediately apply back on the job.

  • Why it’s worth taking the time to develop and maintain a project plan
  • How to set up a project plan using Excel in a way that allows you to easily view a high-level and detailed status
