Project Management Software Tools for Individual Projects

Without powerful project management software, it has become almost impossible to organize complex project environments. Over the last few years, software has become every project manager’s indispensable tool. With its aid, users can structure individual projects optimally, view project progress as a whole at any time as well as document the individual progress of all project participants. Imminent delays and budget overruns can be identified in good time. As a result, appropriate countermeasures can be taken.

Software Tools for Portfolio and Multi-Project Management

The multi-project and program environment calls for appropriate enterprise project management tools or PMO tools. Such tools also allow users to optimize the project portfolios. Overviews of relevant milestones for steering boards help in the control of running projects. These overviews can be created automatically (bottom-up). In addition, the right tool also supports the top-down communication of targets from the steering board into the individual projects.

Tools for Project Resource Management

In the field of project management software, it is also vital to have appropriate tools for resource management. After all, the projects’ work packages have to be implemented by staff members who are not always available when the project managers need them. In the matrix organization, this requires the coordination between the project manager and the respective team leader. A tool for resource planning in teams serves the transfer of results from line management to the projects.

Integration of Tools in the Project Environment

In the complex program environment, integration can offer particular advantages as an option for data exchange between project management tools and e.g. ERP systems. This enables all roles to work with the tool that is best for them. Moreover, data have to be entered only once, and the latest information is available for decision-making at all times. The right middleware helps here.

Tools for Work Planning

Work packages from the projects are delegated to line managers. In this event, the team leaders need to keep an overview of all tasks and the team members who implement them. Special work management tools help with this process. If these tools are able to report the status of these tasks back to the project, this is a great help for the project manager. In most cases, this will require a special integration solution.

Automated Graphical Reporting

Integration can also make reporting in project management much more meaningful and efficient. At the touch of the button, project managers and decision-makers obtain meaningful and graphically presented overview reports allowing an interactive drill-down to the project details as required. Alternatively, data from different databases can be compiled into an automatically generated PowerPoint presentation suitable for the board of directors.
