Process Management Plan

The Process Management Plan is a document defining how a project is executed.

The process owner creates the plan following inputs from the project team and the key stakeholders. It is a formal, approved document that defines how the process is executed, monitored, and controlled. It may be a summary or a detailed document and may include baselines, subsidiary management plans, and other planning documents. This document is used to define the approach the project team takes to deliver the intended process management scope of the process.

With that said, this is the standard information addressed by the plan:

  • Overview and context
  • Description of process and its implementation
  • Preservation
  • Long-term storage and funding
  • Sharing and reuse
  • Legal aspects
  • Monitoring and external dependencies
  • Adherence and Review
