One good way of handling management plans is to create generic versions of them at the organization level and then bring them to the projects and only tailor them a little. That makes the planning process faster and easier, and also creates a level of uniformity among all the projects in the organization, which in turn, makes it easier to share information and lessons among projects.

When you want to have management plans at the organization level, it’s done in a central place, and it’s common to call that central place a PMO. However, PMO can mean different things. You can learn more about it here.
