Project Management Tools That Work is about the on time and high quality delivery of information technology (IT) and software intensive projects. Most insights are not specific to technology projects and will be useful on any project.
For example, one secret to improving quality is to deliver a project on time, especially if we have a history of delivering late. Just getting to on time can result in a huge bump to quality. Getting to on time is centered on measuring our past performance with brutal honesty. Once we get to on time with quality we will be ready to step up to an even higher level of performance.
Finally, YOU are your most important project management tool. I love tools, but what YOU do with them makes the difference.
I periodically review and update these articles, so it is not inconceivable that the article you read some time ago will be a bit different than it currently is. The point and concept illustrated will be the same but the way it is explained or the examples given may be different. Pictures and clipart to illustrate the articles are primarily drawn from the Microsoft Word collection and from Wikimedia Commons.
