Microsoft Project

Microsoft Project--the standalone version--is great for those smaller to medium size projects. But when engaging larger projects where you are engaging with multiple stakeholders who are providing inputs, then Project Online/Server is the way to go; It does an amazing job by driving collaboration in a multitude of ways.

Pros

  • Resource Management and Task/Demand Management planning, tracking and reporting.
  • Pivot Table and Business Intelligence Reporting with the enterprise or local data in the Project Schedule
  • Cost and Resource work forecasting for what if scenarios and active to planning workload tracking. This is done with a drag and drop Outlook/Calendar interface called the Team Planner View. The enterprise version allows us to quickly manage and track/forecast resource work across the entire company.

Cons

  • There is a little training needed since this will act like a spreadsheet, but really has a full relational database behind the scenes.
  • Many people think this has just a waterfall scheduling approach, but we found this to be very effective with Agile and SCRUM. Again a little knowledge on the tool's capabilities pay dividends for end user productivity

For basic schedule building, which is what I primarily use it for, is great and very easy. I don't really understand much else although I would like to learn because everything I do use it for is very easy to do and learn

Alternatives Considered

MS Project was superior to Proventia. Much more intuitive tool. MS Project was more robust, offered more functionality, and offered better reporting options. As noted earlier, MS Project was more flexible as it can manage the full portfolio of projects from small to large with all the bells and whistles one would need.

Return on Investment

  • Project has helped keep my project from being derailed by scope creep.
  • While Project isn't a money making tool, it does help keep your projects on-budget
  • MS Project is a pretty hefty expense. Integration is supported, if you have MS project Server.
