Online project management resources: shared

Some of our readers would like to share resources they've found useful. Isn't that what blogging is all about?

The first relates to project management tools. See Squeezed Books: Online Guide to Project Management Resources.

The site gives a short review of several tools and how they can prove useful in projects. They range from cloud-based tools, open source, apps etc. and cover such software as : Zoho, Microsoft Project, Teamlab, Campfire, Basecamp, Huddle, Binfire, the jxProject, Dot Project, Task Juggler, Open Workbench, Gliffy, GQueues, gTrax, and Google Drive among others. Any of these ring a bell with you? Are you using them or others like them?

The second resource that's recommended is 10 Tips for Project Management Prosperity.

Although these are tips for general project management, you'll recognise their value. We major on all the aspects in this blog. Perhaps the Tip Number 9, Test Deliverables, seems to lean towards the older waterfall methodology of software development rather than the Agile approach, but the principle remains valid.

Many thanks to Stacy and her students. Anyone else like to share? We're listening.

  1. Fist rated blog. These days, everything is going online. The way you share documents, the way you collaborate with your team and the way you manage projects is also moving to the web. That's why online project management is so popular. By storing everything about your project in one place online, it means that the entire team can access the right information when they need it, regardless of where they are located. Good day!!

  3. There are a lot of project management tools, but the one that I found useful is http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00MAAXXCK I am using this from last three months and working quite effectively on different projects. Software should be user friendly so that everyone can work on it easily.
