On average, large IT projects run 45 percent over budget and 7 percent over time, while delivering 56 percent less value than predicted. Having a budget tracking is therefore crucial to support you as project manager in monitoring your spendings, the remaining budget and the upcoming costs.
Using a budget template can help make the process a little less intimidating. This tool allows to track your budget at different spending levels (categories and sub-categories). The visualisation is supported with graphs that immediately highlight under-spendings and over-spendings.
The tool can be further improved and adjusted to your specific needs. The macros are easy to understand and can be further developed as they are not password protected.
