Tools & Templates

There are many tools and resources to help you lead a project. Part of the role of the project lead is using judgment to determine what resources will add value given the scope and scale of the work the team needs to accomplish. The ASR One-Page Project Management Template is lightweight and consolidates a number of standard templates that will add the most value to your project. 

Additionally, ASR has a repository of project management tools and templates in Google Drive. This is a good spot to browse and consider what additional documentation you might want utilize during your project.  This repository also contains documentation for information and access for various systems and resources, like LucidChart (ASR Staff Access Only).
