Every project manager and team member knows there are a slew of forms used throughout the life cycle of a project-that is, if the project is managed right. From the beginning scope statement to the final closing documents, forms are a big part of effective project management. They act as a method to keep everyone involved, literally, on the same page. At BrightHub, our project management writers have been working diligently to provide you, our readers, with standard form templates that you can download and customize to your own individual projects. One of our most popular articles is Eric Stallsworths How to Write a Scope Statement. Beyond giving the reader a link to a downloadable free scope statement project management form, Eric talks in detail about the importance of an effective scope statement, the sections of a scope statement and gives you some great hints for minimizing scope creep. Writer Natasha Baker continues the theme of getting a project charter with her Project Charter Example for Every Project Manager article. Like Eric, Natasha offers up a link to a related, free project management template that you can download for your own personal use. Once you have a defined scope statement and or project charter, agreed upon by project stakeholders and team members, alike, you are ready to begin building your WBS. And, while that often seems like a simple task on the surface, building a successful work breakdown structure is an art form. Ann Gordon has penned a great three-part series aptly titled, What is a Work Breakdown Structure?. Throughout this article, Ann offers of a plethora of examples and how-to tips for building your own WBS. After you have built your WBS, what do you do with it? The answer for many project managers often points to tracking your WBS using a Gantt Chart. Toward that end, we have a couple of targeted articles. In Michele McDonoughs article, How to Make a Gantt Chart in Excel, the author details the steps involved in creating a Gantt Chart using Microsoft Excel.
Over the last decade, limited liability companies (LLCs) have become one of the most preferred forms of business entities through which to hold title to investment real estate properties. LLCs did not come into existence in the United States until 1977 when the State of Wyoming enacted special legislation to accommodate the needs of oil companies. Prior to LLCs, real estate investors seeking limited liability protection were largely limited to using corporations to acquire title—a form of entity that has potential drawbacks. Florida followed Wyomings lead a few years later by enacting its own LLC statute in 1982 and now all 50 states have enacted legislation creating some form of the LLC business structure. The insulation from personal risk exposure for real estate investors provided by LLCs, coupled with the relative ease of administration and potential tax benefits, make ownership of investment property through an LLC a very desirable option in most instances.
Most people who seek to create a will have simple estates. The average person has a home, a spouse, some bank accounts, a vehicle, some investments, and some valuable personal property. There is nothing complex or confusing. In fact, a lot of that property is probably already set up to pass without a will (a home owned as tenants by the entirety or investment accounts owned as joint tenants with right of survivorship pass without a will just by the way they are owned). If you do not complete a will, the rest of your assets are distributed according to your states intestacy law (the law that governs what happens to property that is not protected by a will or other estate plan), so it makes sense to take a few minutes to fill out a form that clarifies your wishes. If you just want to be sure all of your property gets left to your spouse or your children or grandchildren (or if you have specific items you want to give to specific people, such as jewelry or meaningful mementos), a free last will and testament is an easy way to accomplish that. The smaller your estate, the easier the case becomes for using a will template. Free will templates allow you to choose an executor who will manage your estate, as well as a guardian if you have any minor children. Writing a will template allows you to cover every single important issue that needs to be addressed to provide complete peace of mind in most situations.
