A solid project management action plan is a big step in realizing goals. In fact, many organizations benefit from action plan formats to effectively manage and complete projects. Our Action Plan Template is here for you to organize and track your goals easily in Excel!


You can easily keep track of steps to take in achieving employee goals and their current progress. With its dynamic and interactive summary charts, the Action Plan Template gives you a clear understanding of your project efforts.

Action Plan Template Features

This template consists of two main parts:

  • Dashboard
  • Goal Sections


The dashboard of the Action Plan Excel Template has three main functions. Firstly, it is used to define your goals. The data area is already created to accommodate twenty main goals.

Start by listing your goals here and later on, you will move on to the details of each goal!

Secondly, the dashboard has navigation buttons to view and edit the details of each goal. Once a new goal is created, the ‘Goal Section’ navigation button will automatically be created. Click on the relevant ‘Go to Goal’ button to visit the goal page.

Thirdly, you may find the analysis and reporting charts as a summary section. The action plan analysis includes:

Number of Goals represents the total number of your current goals.

Number of Actions – shows the total number of actions listed to achieve all goals.

Action Process – provides the percentage of progress in achieving your goals.


As well as Goal Status, Action Status, Action Progress, and Achievement Rate charts, here you can see dynamic charts.

Goal Sections

The goal sections of the Action Plan Template are individual sheets for each goal. Here you will add details of each goal. These details include risks and opportunities as well as action-related details.

In this template, you can add up to 30 goals.

You will input risks and opportunities (optional), actions, and responsible persons manually. You may also add start and end dates. In addition, you will easily use the dropdown menu option to choose:

As a matter of fact, the responsible person for each action, its priority level, current progress level, and status.


These details will be used to create the dashboard summary charts for the Project Action Plan. A visual summary of your goals and the relevant actions will appear on the dashboard page once you have added them.

Note: If you want this template in Google Sheets, you can download our Action Plan Google Sheets Template.

  1. Marshal Nieves

    I like your product. rows are not enough(risks, actions, etc). but still the product is very useful for us.

    • Someka

      Hi Marshal,

      Adding more lines is possible, after unlocking the premium version of the product with the password we sent.
      Under each goal sheet, you will see plus (+) signs on the left side of the table.
      Extra rows will be added automatically when you click on the plus (+) signs.
      Please see the image below.


      Hope this helps!

  2. Lorrie Bunker

    on goal sheet, it’s visually beautiful that the bar indicator increases proportionally as progress is completed. thanks for your creativity.

  3. M.J.

    Can I add an instruction and tips tab within the template or will i have to create it in a separate word doc?

    • Someka

  4. Lorenzo Winston

    I loved the Excel but I cannot see the different section name (like dashboard, goal1-2-3). How can I go to Goal page?

    • Someka

      Hello Lorenzo,
      Just on the right side of each goal there is a navigation button which takes you to the sheet of this particular goal. You may click on the button to go to the sheet:


      If you also wish to see sheet tabs (section names), Go to File > Options > Advanced, and under Display options for this workbook, and make sure the Show sheet tabs check box is selected.
