Instead of Joe and Jane Public getting the technology crumbs and castoffs of the professional sector, the tide really has turned. Now it’s smartphones and tablets that fire domestic fervor and that force firms to scramble to implement their BYOD (bring your own device) policies. It’s the same with social networking. Facebook, Twitter and a number of their companions are huge in the consumer space, and the tsunami has now arrived on shores of organizations, agencies and enterprises. One of the areas deeply affected is project management. But in truth, the sea change from command and control to collaborative working started some time before. (more…)

But that’s assuming everyone agrees on which tools or applications can effectively help. Project management apps like Clarizen, Wrike, JIRA and Zoho Projects have been designed with change management in mind, and collaboration tools can also be useful. (more…)

Ever since the first project manager experimented with a spreadsheet, people have been padding task estimates with "safety margins." In the world of critical paths and PERT charts, it’s understandable. The order of the tasks is what counts and rigid scheduling is what keeps things in order. Or at least, that’s the theory. However, from this point of view, time can’t be saved if one task finishes early. That extra time is unavailable for use elsewhere. (more…)
