Project management decision making is an administrative process lying on intersection of different project functional areas, collecting data from different project aspects and processes, and supporting the entire project performance course. Basically, the project management decision making process is owned by the project manager (powered by key and secondary stakeholders) who keeps under control a variety of different indicators which make him aware if something goes wrong so that his competent advice or intervention is necessary to bring the work back on track. There are different methods which provide certain rationale and scientific background for making right decisions. Every project should have special project management decision log where the project manager and other administrators of lower managerial levels can record their ideas, actual decisions along with giving justification for them. Methods used to justify decisions include project management decision tree (where manager drives his decision-making baseline via ramifications of probable event development scenarios) and project management decision matrix (used to score decisions by their “success criteria” such as costs, efforts, benefits, etc).
VIP Task Manager is client-server software for task and time management which can support decision-making practice of project and business managers via providing them with relevant information on how the supervised work is going on. It provides you with three sharable interface modes (Task List, Task Tree and Calendar) that can be used by project planners and trackers for analyzing progress over the working plans in order to identify evolution or defections.
To arrange project management – do the following:
- start your project management software;
- organize your project on the Task Tree view in a way suiting your vision and approaches (function-orientated, phase-oriented, etc);
- plan and schedule your project tasks in terms of time, costs, etc;
- assign tasks to employees;
- check and compare if your project meets the plan;
