While analyzing search queries data on Google Trends, I observed one of the top search queries related to project management is regarding search for ‘free project management documents templates’. This finding made me recall my initial days as project manager and later while I was preparing for PMP examination, I also searched various templates to see how project management concepts are actualized in real world and how different processes are recorded in documents. Therefore I thought it would be a good idea to compile list of free project management documents templates and share them in one place. It would be a good resource for new project managers, particularly, while seasoned project managers can also compare templates-in-use with these templates and might find something useful to add.
