As a technology manager (or any project manager for that matter) you’re going to need to find a way to keep track of everything going on with your project.
In 2018, that means choosing the right project management software to plan, schedule, track, and communicate during your project lifecycle. There are tons of options out there. Some include everything for the entire project lifecycle. Some specialize in a certain portion of the project. Others can be used to augment other project management software.
Your job is to figure out the right project management software for yourself and your organization. The first thing to understand is that there are many project managers that will use multiple software programs through the lifecycle for a single project.
Microsoft Project, for example, could be your primary software for project management. There are many applications, but it might not have all the tools you need for your project. So you want to seek out specialized software for your needs. Don’t necessarily go into the process assuming you need to choose a single software and stick with it, working around the warts for no real reason.
