Give me 5 minutes and I’ll share with you some Project Management Tools

As a librarian, I had managed numerous projects in my line of work. One of the most challenging aspects of project management is juggling project tasks. I had to ensure that these tasks are completed on time within the allocated budget and manpower; especially the critical ones.

I tried out a few project management tools to help me better manage, monitor and track the project tasks. Among them are:

Some are offered for free while you may need to get a few days/weeks of trial period for others. There are a few things to consider when you are choosing the “right” tool. Some of them include:

  • Pricing
  • Number of users in the project team
  • Collaborative features
  • Reporting features
  • Alerts/Reminders
  • Export/Archival features
  • Integration with other cloud tools
  • Mobile devices integration
  • User Friendliness
  • Easy to learn

I am using Trello for my stuff that is to track life/family events and To-Dos and use Basecamp for my office work. Both work well, and there are pros and cons. An important thing to note is that you need to be comfortable in using them and it suits your needs. This criterion may vary from person to person. There’s not a one size fits all solution. Check out these tools, and I’m sure you’ll find one that fulfills your needs.
