Single-Point PM Tools

Never has there been a workflow responsible for so many colloquial expressions - “keeping your head above water” or “drinking from a fire hose” or “herding cats”- than project management. Referring to the endless, and oftentimes overwhelming, amounts of information, activities, decisions and issues arising from the jobsite, project managers are tasked the responsibility of harnessing and controlling variables. Amidst this onslaught, it's average project managers who manage variables when they arise. Only great project managers anticipate and mitigate variables before they even appear.

 

As technology tools develop, project managers are now able to get ahead by capturing and analyzing actionable data in less time than ever before. This is translating into better field management, better decisions, better negotiating leverage and more capacity to plan ahead. Effectively, technology is turning the most basic project managers into great project managers.
