Project management is difficult. Don’t let anyone tell you differently.
In the best of times, project management requires tracking down absent deliverables, analyzing data to predict when things will be done, and communicating information to stakeholders so they don’t make your life miserable with aggressive update requests.
How do project managers organize all those moving pieces into one coherent plan? They use the best project management tools.
History provides us with a couple notable examples. Could Henry Ford have delivered the requisite number of Model Ts without the organization of an assembly line? Would Paul Bunyan have been as productive without Babe the Blue Ox acting as a repository for all of his lumber data?
