What is Project Management Software?

Most of the big companies are using one of the following Project Management Software listed above. It's designed to support multiple users modifying different sections of the plan at once and delivered the project on time.

In the company i working right now, we used Mavenlink for our project collaboration, it's a very nice software aside from their friendly UI of the software most of the project management software features  that the companies looking for is already in the mavenlink.

People and Internet Goes on Strike

Millions of Americans oppose SOPA and PIPA because these bills would censor the Internet and slow economic growth in the U.S.

Two bills before Congress, known as the Protect IP Act (PIPA) in the Senate and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the House, would censor the Web and impose harmful regulations on American business. Millions of Internet users and entrepreneurs already oppose SOPA and PIPA.

An unprecedented online protest against a Hollywood-backed copyright bill may be working: some of its previous supporters in the U.S. Congress are backing down.

The protest, which included a Wikipedia blackout and home page alerts at Google.com and Amazon.com, has prompted some senators contacted by CNET today to abandon their earlier enthusiasm for Protect IP and the Stop Online Piracy Act, or SOPA. A Senate floor vote on Protect IP is scheduled for January 24.

Pivotal Tracker is the award winning agile project management software tool that enables real time collaboration around a shared, prioritized backlog. It keeps everyone, even distributed teams focused and on the same page, with an integrated, always up to date story board. Your team will stay on target with Tracker's continuous, automatic prediction of milestone completion dates, based on historical performance. Most importantly, you'll get the right product to the market, sooner, based on Tracker's simple, yet powerful workflow which encourages continuous customer feedback and prioritization.

10 reasons I like Pivotal Tracker.

  1. It’s free.
  2. It’s hosted.
  3. It’s a joy to use. It’s the iPod of project management software. It’s all drag-and-drop and clickity-clack and it just works.
  4. It’s multi-user. Your co-founder in North Korea can make changes in Tracker and you will see them instantly. No page reloads.
  5. It’s for lean startups. The building block in Tracker is a story: an increment of customer value that you deliver with minimal waste.
  6. It’s about completing your next most important task—not maintaining mile-long to-do lists, Gantt charts, and lists of bugs.
  7. It’s transparent. Everybody on the team knows what everybody else is working on, their priorities, and their accomplishments.
  8. It’s in sync with reality. It doesn’t take time to keep your requirements and schedule in sync with reality, even if your business priorities change daily.
  9. It doesn’t do much. No, it doesn’t do dependencies and critical paths. It just keeps you focused on delivering value to customers.
  10. It’s powerful as hell. Tracker hides a lot of technology under a simple interface. It’s a serious Javascript-intensive web application that’s in the same league as Gmail and Google Maps.
  11. Bonus reason: Everything is on one page—there’s no need to navigate around (unlike other project management tools). More Gmail, less Hotmail.

So having the right project management tools make all the difference. However about the actual staff who should use these tools? Have you given them the right training? Are they fully able to take advantage of all the fancy features your whiz-bang new pm tool does? We find that when it comes to software companies or organizations in general, it normally is a struggle to put in place system to even track or manage this all important orgnizational power tool. When folks use powerful project management software tools but turn around and track employee training using excel something inside me dies. I mean comeon folks. Will it kill you to use a learning management system to automate, distribute and track training? We are millenials afterall. Read More >>
