Simple project planner is required when you don’t need any complex solutions that suit complicated needs of large corporations, but not needs of small teams or standalone individuals. For example, functionality of a tool such as MS Project is just extremely overwhelming and improperly expensive if you are going to use it as a home project planner, let’s say for controlling tasks and costs of your family house repair, and keeping track over family budget. Usually, a big number of such users just need something like electronic project planner notebook that can deliver them a basic functionality – planning tasks and personal events, forming up checklists, setting due dates, categorizing commitments and notes, tracking time left before upcoming appointments, and getting appropriate reminders as soon as important date is close enough.
VIP Organizer is a good example that covers main needs of the most individuals who just want to manage their agendas and daily tasks. This is effective personal checklist manager with possibility to prioritize and categorize your appointments.
VIP Task Manager is a more advanced kind that suits needs of small teams which need collaborating at shared project (for example, it can work as a client-server school project planner used to interconnect teachers in classrooms and their direction in terms of delegating tasks, controlling marks and worksheets, timesheets, etc).
To plan and analyze projects in simple terms – do the following:
- start your work planning software
- explain tasks using specific terms, including time, costs, etc.
- plan and schedule these tasks for performers
- control and guide the workforce performance
