Brainstorming is frequently used when developing solutions about the project management plan to gather ideas and solutions about the project approach. Some of the attendees for brainstorming sessions include the project team members, although other Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) can also participate in this brainstorming session.



Many organisations also have standardised checklists available based on their own experience or use checklists from the industry.


A checklist may guide the Project Managers to develop the plan or may help to verify that all required information is included in the project management plan.
