Non-Profit/Higher Education Project Management Series: The Project Plan
College and University Volume 88, Number 1, ISSN 0010-0889
This is the second installment of the AACRAO management series focusing on project management in the academy. In this article, the authors focus on white papers (often called charters, briefs, or fact sheets) and their partner, the work plan. The work plan is a detailed document that defines each aspect of a project. It is often preceded by a white paper--a two-page version of the work plan that is used as a proposal or brief. Once the work plan and white paper are written, introduce them to the stakeholders, owners, clients, management parties, and anyone else who needs to understand the project and/or allocate monetary or political resources.
