Project collaboration


Modern tendencies in project collaboration:

Project collaboration is when people do their specific jobs according to their individual responsibilities and schedules, matching common job plan. It runs around the project objectives and tasks, project qualitative and quantitative settings, around following the predefined project timeline and budget. Golden rule for this case is: the better is the level of communication between all levels of project management hierarchy as well as between different task groups and individuals, the easier is the realization of the project. In order to make project collaboration smoothly running, easily manageable, agile and optimized, you need not only to create regulations and rules to set interrelations between project participants, but also provide project stakeholders with appropriate implements (to create project collaboration system). Common approaches recommend using project collaboration software , because it gives new promising opportunities for interconnecting a group of people in terms of their project duties and tasks, making this process quick, low-cost and effective.

Project collaboration software – its purposes and way of working:

The purpose is ensuring instant exchange of information between members of the project team, so they can always stay in touch with the latest news and achievements related to project performance. The software works as sharable database of project facts and tasks described in multiple parameters, so everyone who is granted with appropriate permissions can delve into content of this database in order to get the all round picture of project situation. Actually, it helps everyone in the team to control the working process, but with regard to their individual project roles etc. It streamlines dataflow between project managers and project participants – managers get those tools for managing and assigning workloads to performers, as well as other project participants obtain tools for studying and reporting their assignments.

Some solutions and technologies:

There are a lot of teamwork tools, working on different principles, but in general there are online project collaboration tools (for web-based teamwork through the Internet), and desktop shareware (installable on PC’s and working within your office LAN). The problem of any web-based package is its critical dependence on Internet connection, bringing all related issues, like remote server timeouts, slow performance etc. Simple example of online project collaboration software is the set of Google instruments – shared documents, calendar and to-do list. On the other hand, examples are Microsoft packages – MS Project and MS Outlook.

Though the great capabilities of these products, they are designed rather for single-user work, and require additional payments if you want to establish project collaboration (for example you need project collaboration Sharepoint and MS Server software for making MS Project sharable ). Also you can find free software that is usually open-source (project collaboration freeware) . It is not easy to find a good open source solution , but there are some examples, and usually such package requires payments for support, for extension of functionality, and even for its collaboration module (server). Let’s consider software that has none of mentioned problems (no problems peculiar to online and open source project collaboration), but makes your project collaboration really effective and easy.
