If you are like most project managers out there you likely reach frustration points at certain points in your career – perhaps even monthly or weekly – when you reach limitations in the PM tools available to you to do your job. I’m sure if we all had enough time in our days – and enough confidence in our abilities – we could map out exactly what we need and get someone to build the perfect PM tool for us…whatever your key job or responsibility may be. From a project management perspective, that is usually a scheduling and reporting tool that can wrap the process of task management up with the burden of status reporting along with the rose colored glasses view of collaboration and come up with one PM tool that does it all for us and puts us on easy street for the rest of the day or week. Does that sound like something you’ve dreamed about before? Maybe five minutes ago? Am I getting warmer?
