Project Management Tools

Tools are the means that help managers and the team members successfully plan, manage and execute the different tasks involved in each project.

Project Management Tools
The best project management tools are not very sophisticated. They include primarily templates, check-lists (milestone reviews) and planning software such as Microsoft Project

Given the wide range of project management tools available, the key to selecting the right one is understanding that different tools are needed along the different stages of a project life cycle.

During all phases of the project, Milestones Reviews and Business Plans take a leading role, whereas in the Initiation phase, Project Charter, Business Plan, Project Framework (or Overview), and Business Case Justification are essential.

In the Execution and Control phases, an update of Risk Analysis and Score Cards prevail. During Closure, no special tool is needed.
