Here you can find a simple Plan template in Microsoft Word/Excel format, along with explanation on how to use it.


“Plan” can be a Project Plan, a Stage Plan, or a Team Plan. They have the same structure.

In general, you need to explain the objectives (6 variables), give reference to Product Descriptions, explain how you’re going to monitor and control in the scope of the plan, what lessons you’ve considered when creating the plan, and… and the schedule!

According to PRINCE2, your schedule can have different formats, but in practice, a common schedule in a predictive project (one that is not adaptive/Agile) is a Gantt Chart with a table containing start and finish date of each activity, its cost, and probably resources. But feel free to use anything else, as long as it can make the “schedule” clear.


The template has these main sections:

eLearning Courses

If you’d like to learn everything about PRINCE2, I can suggest our eLearning courses:

The first few lessons in each course are free. You can start taking the courses right now and make sure it’s what you’ve been looking for before you buy.

Note: The first 30% of the courses used to be free, but because of the recent constraints from PeopleCert, we’re not allowed to offer more than 15% of the scope or more than 90 minutes of the duration for free.
