Hello Community! 😊
We continue our Use Case Template series and today, we’d like to introduce to you one of the templates in the “Basic” section of the template gallery - Structured Projects. This template can come in handy for those who are starting to use Wrike for work management, or if you’re helping others onboard to Wrike.
Accessing Wrike’s Use Case Templates
Use Case templates are available in the Space creation dialogue. In order to use a template, start creating a Wrike Space how you usually would and you’ll see the option to create this space from a pre-made Wrike Use Case template:
And just a quick reminder to you that now not only account owners and admins can use these templates, but also those users who have the right to create spaces 👍
Both projects follow the same structure represented by folders: Initiation, Planning, Execution & Monitoring, and Closing & Reporting.
Let’s take a closer look at what each of the stages consists of.
- Validate business need
- Formulate requirements
- Define objectives
- Assess risks
- Write down success criteria
- Create basic project decomposition
- Create project timeline
- Finalize project deliverables
- Identify required resources
Execution & Monitoring
- [Ongoing] Team accountability
- [Ongoing] Team motivation
- Reach final milestone
- Regulate course correction
Closing & Reporting
- Celebrate :)
- Conduct post-mortem
- Confirm project completion
- Release resources
- Transfer deliverables
📍Tip: You may have noticed that most of the sample tasks’ titles start with a verb. It is a general recommendation to name your action items in this manner that shows exactly what needs to be done to complete a task.
The archive is there for you as well to make sure you can hide the completed projects without losing access to them.
You may already have a good structure for your projects, but can this use case template add to it? Can it perhaps help with onboarding new team members? Please share below 👇
