Statement of Work Templates
Hello Fellow Patina Team Members - I am just jumping into consulting and need to develop a statement of work template. Are there examples that can be shared? Or, are there resources you would recommend that provide them? Thanks - Phil
Welcome to the consulting world! I suggest picking up Million Dollar Consultant by Alan Weiss. Reading it will ensure your statement of work is communicated on a good template, and also that your approach and the quality of the SOW is strong.
Good luck, Mark
I have used a template from Formswift.com It does require that you subscribe to get access. I don't remember what it cost. The template prompts you for required information and spits out a completed SOW. The site has kinds of forms that may need in your business.
I suggest that you get a copy of the book Million Dollar Consulting Proposals by Alan Weiss. It has good examples.
Selling value has not changed. I am open to be enlightened.
Attached are work statements from a project I completed with Patina. Although, your project my be a different subject matter I thought the format may help. The Patina format was the submitted version and the initial outline was my version used to develop the understanding of work.
Hopefully this helps you.
I don't believe both made the attachment. Possibly only allows one attachment per reply.
Thanks for all the replies. Much appreciated!
Phil, here's a template that I built for consulting proposals/statements of work. I've left in some sample text in spots to give you a sense of what might be contained in those sections. I hope this is helpful.
