Not All Project Management Software Is Created Equal
The purpose of Project Management Software is to provide
an environment in which a group of people can work together on joint
projects. Most projects involve the development and implementation of
new ideas, and these ideas have to be presented, evaluated, and revised.
The role of Project Management Software is to help this
collaborative effort along. Collaboration happens at various levels and
it is up to the Project Management Software to facilitate all these
A typical Project Management scenario
Consider a creative agency developing a marketing campaign for
one of its major clients. The project team includes a number of
individuals within the agency -- the creative director, the copywriter,
the illustrator, the graphic designer, etc. But it also includes
personnel on the client's staff: the product manager, the advertising
manager, even the general manager if it is an important enough project.
And the team will usually include outside agents who have been
hired specifically to deliver some component of the project:
illustrators, photographers, voice over specialists, audio and video
studio personnel...the list goes on.
All of these people have to be kept in the loop as the project proceeds.
Traditionally, coordination of this sort was done by the project
manager. But Project Management Software puts this job into
the hands of individual team members. If it is working correctly,
it gives each member of the team an accurate picture of how
the project stands at any given moment.

Once a team member becomes familiar with the Project Management
System, there is no reason not to be fully aware of developments,
timelines and delivery dates, to submit assignments for approval
in a timely manner, and to make revisions as they are necessary.
What to Look for in your Project Management Software
Usability - Perhaps the most important feature a useful
Project Management System must have is ease of use. If using
the software takes more time and effort than it is worth, team
members will quickly stop using it...
