How to Start Using the E-commerce Business Plan Template
  1. Project Initiation
  • Click [+ New Project], fill in the information form and click [Create].
  • You will be guided to the detail page with a pre-set project process and start with Project Initiation. This phase is where the project starts.
  • Use the phrase to signal the beginning of the project and to invoke discussions that lead to the development of the Project Charter – the document that formally authorizes the project and outlines its objectives and stakeholders.
  • Initiate stakeholder meetings to align visions and set the groundwork for project expectations, boundaries, and feasibility. [Identify Stakehoulders] is set as a subtask.
  1. Project Planning
  • Refers to the detailed planning phase of the project.
  • Use this phrase when you're ready to develop a roadmap for the team. It will encompass the project scope, timelines, cost, quality, communication, risk management, and resource planning.
  • This is the step where you break down the project into smaller tasks, set deadlines, and assign responsibilities. The phrase signals a shift to detailed scheduling and resource allocation.
On the 5 parallel nodes of the planning stage, you can upload attachments, add text descriptions of the project scope, add budget forms, and risk lists.
  1. Project Execution
  • Execution is the phase where plans are put into action.
  • Use this phrase to mark the transition into the phase where the project plan is implemented, and deliverables are being developed and completed.
  • It’s the 'doing' phase of the project, so you should focus on task completions, team developments, and output generation. Status meetings and updates are critical here to maintain momentum and address any issues promptly.
  1. Project Monitoring and Controlling
  • This phase runs concurrently with the project execution phase.
  • Use the phrase to remind the team that while the project is underway, constant monitoring is needed to ensure project progress aligns with the project management plan.
  • This stage involves tracking performance, managing changes, scope verification, and ensuring project objectives are met. Regular reports and checkpoints are implemented to compare actual progress with planned progress.
  1. Project Closing
  • This is the final phase of the project life cycle.
  • Use this phrase to signify that project delivery is complete, and it's time to wrap up the process.
  • It involves handing over deliverables to the client, releasing project resources, and determining the success of the project. Celebrate the team's success, document the lessons learned, and compile project documentation for closure.
