Project management can be a really difficult beast to tackle, especially if the state of your business isn’t in top shape yet (think: departments aren’t organized, people haven’t broken up into groups on what they need to do yet, and worse). That doesn’t mean that you can’t fix it now, though, and project management tools are what you need to make that situation right. “How to choose the right project management tools – CIO” shows you just how that’s done.
- Existing process and technology capabilities, including legacy systems may impact future technologies and how good data is passed.
- Financial readiness is definitely a key consideration when selecting not only a project management solution, but also the delivery method and level of support provided.
- Project complexity vs requirements must be taken into account as this drives the primary need to select a project management solution.
“The business model and technologies should be the first high-level criteria you take into consideration when thinking about how a PM tool may or may not fit within current and future plans.”
