Term Project Management Software Selection
Code TP-3350.8000-750
Definition Programs that help nonprofit organizations, small businesses and other groups select, install and effectively use software that facilitates project planning, analysis and management by allowing the organization to split complex projects into manageable steps, track resources and schedules and see how tasks are related, which are most important, where bottlenecks are likely to occur and how much the overall project will cost. The software tracks project deliverables and timelines, staff and material resources, task assignments, meeting and appointment schedules, progress toward goals and project expenditures; and may allow for the consolidation of several projects to assess shared resources, identify dependencies between tasks, calculate individual and team work loads and evaluate other factors that have an impact on overall success.
