Project Management Plan

A project plan, according to the Project Management Body of Knowledge, is: "...a formal, approved document used to guide both project execution and project control. The primary uses of the project plan are to document planning assumptions and decisions, facilitate communication among stakeholders, and document approved scope, cost, and schedule baselines. A project plan may be summarized or detailed."

PRINCE2 defines:

"...a statement of how and when a project's objectives are to be achieved, by showing the major products, milestones, activities and resources required on the project."

The project manager creates the project management plan following input from the project team and key stakeholders. The plan should be agreed and approved by at least the project team and its key stakeholders.
