Can project value and success be measured by the sheer weight and volume of documents produced?  Of course not, but documentation does matter.  By design, projects produce and depend on multiple deliverables, all of which become part of the “project record”.   This record must be managed – both for the current project and for future reference.  Read on to learn how it’s done.

CARTEOSO Project documentation services provides the means by which information and ideas are created and shared, and it is the basis upon which decisions are made and approved. It can be said that “if it’s real, it’s documented”, and in fact all key project elements are documented in at least one or more essential documents, ranging from the statement of work, through to the weekly status report. As such, project document management may not be particularly glamorous, but it is a key factor of project success.
