Project management time


Project management time is an amount of working hours that a project team spends on planning and performing activities. If you want to be a successful project manager, you need to learn how to manage PM time constraint in order to avoid time wasting and ensure that your team is productive for most of its working time. Efficient management will help you deliver project products always on schedule and on budget.

The best way to see whether your job is optimized and on track is to record time actually spent vs. time planned to be spent. Time records can be made by carrying out a scheduling process (or "time process"). This process helps you monitor progress of your work and track status of every task. The time process allows you to develop timetables that help plan and control working time required for executing project activities. You can make and review records to know which tasks have been completed, when and for how long.

The process will help you to:

  • Record working hours within your work
  • Use sheets to monitor the working hours spent by your team
  • Make job estimation
  • Identify and resolve issues and re-allocate resources
  • Track variance and keep your plan up-to-date throughout the whole project lifecycle
The time process can be managed by using job tracking software. For example, you can use VIP Task Manager to plan, manage and track working time required for completing tasks of your project. This software supports information sharing and real-time team collaboration. VIP Task Manager was designed to help enhance team efficiency by allowing you to track critical information on job activities. You can design todo lists, generate Excel and graph reports, review task deadlines and timeframes, allocate budgets , and communicate and collaborate with team members.
Shared calendar program

If you need to perform calculations in your project and estimate cost, you can use Custom Fields option of VIP Task Manager . Custom Fields option allows you to set formulas and add new columns to your task lists and todo lists. Your formulas will let you estimate required scope of your project (i.e. identify scope cost) and manage quality of your project (i.e. define quality cost).

The software features Calendar and Task List. These tools allow you to build and share schedules, todo lists, project timelines and work calendars. Every member of your project team can use Calendar to review and manage both group todo lists and personal tasks. Task List tool helps categorize todo lists and create hierarchies of tasks. You can plan tasks and teamwork by prioritizing tasks and setting due dates. Calendar has Grid View option that shows project management time frames. You can use Filter Bar of the software to filter tasks and display only necessary tasks on your project timeline.

VIP Task Manager has Charts panel that lets you build charts and diagrams. This panel helps you get a graph representation of your project activities and see allocated working hours in a graph view. The panel allows printing out charts and diagrams, so by means of this panel you can create printable estimates.
