Most projects do not have a full-time project manager. In most projects, project managers spend some time on the project and some time on other work that is not part of the project. This usually means that monitoring project performance is ad hoc, increasing the likelihood that critical variations from the project plan may take some time to be noticed.
TASKey has spent over 12 years developing a web software tool to automate a lot of the work that the project manager and project team members are expected to do. So most projects can receive many of the benefits a full-time project manager provides.
The work a project manager does is essential to every project. This work includes; planning, organizing, tracking, coordinating, informing and reporting. So either the person managing the project does this project work, instead of doing other work, or a viable alternative is found.
Many project managers try to use software for this project work. However even project management software provides little coordination of the actions/ToDo being done by participants to complete project tasks. This gap means that a lot of a project manager's time and effort is taken up finding out what is happening, sorting out coordination issues, and reminding participants about what they need to do.
TASKey has developed a proven alternative that allows all project team members to participant in the management of the project. Most importantly, it automatically breaks down complex changing projects and associated tasks into a simple personal ToDo list for each participant (including the project manager). Then progress is automatically updated in real-time as ToDo's are ticked off.
By eliminating the great weakness in project implementation, the web software (TASKey Me2Team for small projects and TASKey TEAM for enterprises) allows people doing the project to be better informed and to better contribute. In addition, the project manager and other stakeholders can receive real-time information of what is actually happening. So everyone can make better more timely decisions.
Using TASKey web project software, project managers have more time for people and other work; because most of the management is done automatically in the background. The project manager and project team members are automatically kept informed via email about any changes that affect them, and they can instantly see what is happening (or not happening) at any time over the Web.
