Business – Data Warehouse Project Plan Template

While I’m no longer a formal Project Manager, from time to time I still have the need to create a project plan or to help someone else to organize a project plan.  Usually. I find that it is easier to get to a more holistic plan faster if I have a pattern of essential tasks and milestones to work with.  So, I usually go to a template that I have assembled across time and use as an accelerator and/or job aide.   The attached project plan templates are for a common data warehouse project pattern, but by no means is intended to be the end-all of project plans; it is just a starter kick, sort of speak.

There are several reasons why projects plan patterns may vary, other than the experience and knowledge of the project planner, among them are:

  • The environment migration pattern in use
  • The application stack the of the environment
  • The tools used to manage the project plan (MS Project, JIRA, OpenProj, etc.)
  • The size and complexity of the project team

Here is the project plan mockup around Infosphere Datastage, but should be adaptable to any other ETL application.
