This month’s free project management template is a decision log. Decisions are taken in all kinds of settings: meetings, on email, when you bump into someone in the corridor… From experience I know that it’s a) hard to remember what decision you took, and b) difficult to find information hidden in meeting minutes to remind yourself of why that decision was taken.
This template sorts out both those problems. Once you’ve started using it you won’t look back, promise!
It would also be great for recording decisions for charity and community projects.
