Instructions

To build an agile project schedule like the example above, follow these instructions:

  1. Download one set of sample files from above. There are Excel and Microsoft Project plans containing all of the key activities for the project, plus a matching OnePager template that will help define the layout of the chart itself. Save both files to your desktop, making sure that you match the OnePager template to the underlying schedule file in Excel or Project.

  2. Open the schedule file in Excel or Microsoft Project.

  3. Once the schedule file is open, go to Add-Ins and click the OnePager button.

  4. On the OnePager start screen, click NEW to build a new timeline.

  5. We need to change OnePager's default template to the one downloaded above. To do this, click on Change, and then BROWSE FILES to the OnePager template (*.tat) file. This OnePager template contains all of the data-driven formatting (styles, layout, etc.) that give this schedule its unique look.
