Effective communication is the cornerstone of success. A crucial tool for facilitating clear and concise communication in project management is the project brief. In this article, we will delve into the definition, purpose, and key components of a project brief, as well as how to create an effective one in Leantime.

What is a Project Brief?

A project brief serves as a centralized source of accurate information for team members, stakeholders, and decision-makers. It outlines essential project details, including goals, objectives, and scope, acting as a roadmap or contingency plan throughout the project lifecycle.

A good project brief includes a project overview, a clear objective, stakeholder identification and roles, a timeline, a division of resources, and a risk assessment. Leantime’s project brief template includes all these elements.

Navigate to Leantime’s Project Brief template using the Blueprints tool. When creating your project brief be sure to conduct thorough research and engage stakeholders to gather all relevant project details. This will help you create a clear and logical structure that ensures their perspectives and all requirements are incorporated. 

Referencing and updating the project brief throughout the project lifecycle is crucial for maintaining alignment and focus. Additionally, a well-crafted project brief is vital for project management, enabling clear communication, goal alignment, and success planning.
