                   About This Project Execution Plan Template:
This template is intended to serve as a guide for the development of a Project Execution Plan (PEP). The
PEP is a detailed document that provides the essentials of a project in terms of its objectives,
justification, and how the objectives are to be achieved. The PEP is a formal, approved document that is
used to guide both project execution and project control as a project progresses through its lifecycle. The
PEP is a detailed blueprint or game plan that charts the entire project’s course and forms the basis for
all management decisions associated with the project. The PEP describes the entire plan for the project
and describes how all the major activities under each project management essential are to be
accomplished, including that of overall project control and communications with stakeholders. It
documents the project associated planning assumptions and decisions, facilitates communication among
stakeholders, and documents the approved scope, cost and schedule baselines. The PEP identifies and
addresses the problem and need (why?), goals and objectives (what?), schedule (when?) and roles
(who?) for the subject project. It also provides the justification for the project and how the objectives are
to be achieved. In addition, the PEP describes how all the major activities under each project
management function are to be accomplished, including the documentation and control of project
planning assumptions and decisions, planning, estimating and risk management, and communications
with and among stakeholders. Recognize that the PEP is not a stagnant document. It is dynamic in
nature and will evolve through successive stages of the project life cycle.

This template identifies 20 major sections and key factors that should be considered for inclusion as part
of every Project Execution Plan. Each section is provided with a discussion on what should be included
therein (italicized).
