Project Management Software - Where Do We Start With Requirements?
During a very interesting meeting with local HR project leaders, they talked about which project management software would help them and whether a program management tool that provided multi-project resource visibility was really useful.
The CHRO was adamant that the real requirement was delivering great projects, on time, to their internal customers. She really had no use for a multi-project resource modeling tool. But I asked the HR leaders responsible for delivering the projects whether they needed that view - and the agreement was unanimous.
One of the most common questions in project management training is "which tool is best?" The answer has to do with what problem you are trying to solve.
Setting up a PMO? Beware of the Classic Mistakes
There is more than one way to succeed at improving project management, but nearly every success story includes someone or some organizational entity that takes responsibility for the project management process, project management training, project management software and ongoing project selection and oversight activities. It doesn't have to be a PMO (Project Management Office) although that is the most common approach.
