As this team knew, some projects just don't need a long involved project plan document; they may be "small" in that they're of short duration, simple or straightforward, well-defined, and/or to be executed by a small team. The temptation may be to run without a plan at all-just "get it done". However, any project no matter how small can benefit from some project planning fundamentals, such as identifying the project goals, risks, timeline, and team roles.
