Project Management with Bullet Journaling (Free Template)

Project management in your bullet journal can be tricky, if like me you combine work and personal, its important to find a way to seamlessly incorporate bullet journaling into you work or project, regardless of what that might look like. So! We understand the challenges and have popped together a really lovely simple to use template for you to download. Scroll to the end too – to see some gorgeous Instagram inspiration! 

So lets start with the basics of Project Management:

The Project Management Institute (PMI) has identified nine areas of knowledge within project management:

1 integration management

2 scope management

3 time management

4 cost management

5 quality management

6 human resource management

7 communication management

8 risk management and

9 procurement management

While these areas are great for professionals in the project management space, those of us that are focused on smaller projects may find this a little over kill!

So what have we identified? It’s important to set up your project summery/scope, so that you have a strong handle on the project going forward and that you can check in and make sure your vision is still the same. So! In our template we have provided this wee project launch page

Project Management Bullet Journal

You will see it has spaces for your project summary, goals, milestones, actions, resources and many of the other basics you might need! DONT FORGET TO CELEBRATE YOUR WINS!

The template also has in place the old school SMART Goals – The acronym SMART has several slightly different variations, which can be used to provide a more comprehensive definition of goal setting:

S – specific, significant, stretching

M – measurable, meaningful, motivational

A – agreed upon, attainable, achievable, acceptable, action-oriented

R – realistic, relevant, reasonable, rewarding, results-oriented

T – time-based, time-bound, timely, tangible, trackable

This broader definition will help you to be successful in both your business and personal life.

Your resources can be People, IT, Locations, budget etc. Depending on your personal style, you may not want to place your budget in a book you may potentially loose 😛

Right – onto the next page:

Here we have left it more open to interpretation that before. Here we have a standing month calendar which funds down the left hand side, this can be used to track multiple projects at once or different parts of the same project. I have created a key on the right which lets me know that on certain days there are certain deliverables.

There is a section called current which covers the “Current” Items that need to be addressed.

As well as a “Due Next” which is essentially like a future log and transfer for your items that do not need immediate attention.

Now – Milestones can again be used in a couple different ways – either as a track of the milestones and how they are progressing, or a bar graph where you can colour in the progress of the milestones and add little red circles for road blocks etc.

Project Management Bullet Journal

Now we move onto planning your weeks! It’s all well and good having a monthly over view, but how do you action these on a day to day/ weekly basis? So we start off with a wee calendar on the right which you can use to keep track of projects or dates in general like you would in your bullet journal. There is also space for key or important dates that might be coming up. Next we have a time tracker, to note how much time you are working on a specific project. There is a space for notes, doodles, affirmations, quotes etc. There is a weekly check in – what tasks do you need to complete on a weekly basis? A running weekly To-Do list of your current priorities and then a space for key project meetings.

Project Management Bullet Journal

Your weekly spread shouldn’t be to complex as you have already set the frame work for your project, so we have kept it simple with the following aspects

Basic sections to include dates, basic weekly trackers, top priorities – Resource management and, project issues and solutions, and finally a basic to do list.

Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday also leave space for project meetings, team discussions and support, and people to follow up with.

Project Management Bullet Journal

While this is not exhaustive, I thought it would be a place to start and help show you that you can in fact blend your bullet journal with project management.

Alright! The free template as promised! Its in the freebies section, so just scroll down to project management 🙂

Some amazing spreads!
