The idea of running both multiple tasks and projects at one time is good as a company can achieve more results in a shorter time. As practice shows such an idea is quite real and feasible but requires implementation of perfect managerial skills and effective software solutions. The point is that activities and projects management entail multiple resource assignments to a huge number of tasks. The project manager faces new challenges and needs to assign team leaders to run and coordinate the tasks and projects effectively. Then a group of team leaders will make internal resource assignments in each project within a set of projects (so called project portfolio). Such a situation requires implementation of software solution which maintains project portfolio management and resource assignments.
VIP Task Manager Professional is the right solution for project portfolio management. It is based on client-server technology which is the best for team collaboration within assignments and task management. The system allows to create, share and protect multiple tasks and projects within a single database file. You can run several projects at one time and coordinate multiple assignments through a group of supervisors which can report you on performance and progress in each project. To avoid unwanted project overlaps and misunderstandings, you can set permissions for each element in a project, so every team member will clearly know his/her duties and to-do lists.
