Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Project

We utilize Microsoft Project to organize and keep track of our business projects. It has been particularly helpful with managing our resource allocation, timelines, tasks, and dependencies. Specifically, I utilize it in HR to manage my own HR-related projects, but others in the business use it on large-scale multi-departmental initiatives.

Pros

  • Resource Allocation
  • Task Dependencies
  • Gantt Chart

Cons

  • Ease of use
  • Exporting to other formats
  • look and feel
  • Helps ensure we can roll out software updates on a timely manner
  • Keeps us from overtaxing our resources
  • Keeps us informed on where we are holding up projects so we can prevent it form happening moving forward
Project integrates more with other Microsoft software so it is more flexible for us to use.
It is hands down the best project tracker, especially if you have a large project with a lot of moving pieces and need a tool to help you get organized. If you are managing a small project with few resources, then it might be more trouble than it is worth to set everything up in a project - as it can take some time.
