One Page Project Manager Excel




The first step in using the template is to set up your project information and then use the template to track the project on a regular basis.

The template has the following key sections -

  • Task tracker (semi-automated)
  • Milestones & key dates
  • Task meter (auto-updated)
  • Resource workload (auto-updated)
  • Top 5 risks & issues (semi-automated)
  • Open Action & Change Requests (semi-automated)
  • Notes & To-Do List (semi automated)
  • Data section 

Task Tracker Section

  • The task tracker is the key section of the template.
  • Enter a task name, Owner, Start Date & Duration.
  • The template will auto-populate end date, forecast & status.
  • End date is calculated by adding duration to start date.
  • The Forecast is the expected progress. So, this will show % that the tasks should have progressed to date.
  • Status is auto-populated with green, amber & red depending on the task status. 
  • If the task is on track, then the status is green. If the task is up to 5% behind then, the status is amber. If the task is delayed by more than 5% the status is red.   

As you progress with the project, you will need to update the Actual column, which is the % progress done so far for the project.

Milestones & Key Dates

  • In this section, you should capture your key project stage gates. Examples of this are Go Live, Funding Sign off, testing complete, etc.
  • In the first column in the description, then status and end date. For status you can select On Track (green), Concern (amber) & Delayed (red).

Task Meter and Resource Workload

  • Task meter shows the status of the tasks & resource meter shows the resources' workload in hours. 
  • Both these sections are auto-updated. 

Top 5 risks/issues & actions/changes

  • Risks/issues section is to capture the current open risks / issues. 
  • The actions/change is a general section to capture actions/changes.
  • Both these sections capture description, Owner & Status. The owner is the individual who owns this task. 
  • For status, you can select On Track (green), Concern (amber) & Delayed (red).

Notes / To Do

Capture your to-do/notes with a due date. The task will be highlighted when the due date is passed.
