Project management tools assist teams in planning, organizing, and managing their resources for maximum results. They also act as a collaboration tool because they help small teams and even keep companies in sync with important tasks such as project planning, task management, and resource management.
Project management applications make it easy to manage and update to-do lists. Industry-wide teams need tools to plan and execute work in one place, collaborate and communicate, create and store critical documents, monitor productivity regularly, and more.
So why does your business need a project management tool? In a study on monday.com, we found that …
Many employees work from home
During COVID-19, many companies needed new ways to help employees work together in response to increased working distance. Regardless of their location, PM tools will continue to keep everyone synchronized and productive and provide digital solutions for traditional project management tools such as Gantt charts.
More than 50% of the projects failed
More than half of all projects fail because they do not meet the initial requirements. Companies do not meet the traditional key performance indicators of time, scale, and budget and waste important resources. This may be because project management tools are not used to properly plan, monitor, and measure the progress of the project.
Project managers need flexibility
72% of project managers want more flexibility in their work. With its own project management tool, any organization can create workflows that meet its specific needs. For example, monday.com allows each team member on the board to apply filters and create their own views for their own work without disturbing others.
PMs have three challenges
The 3 main challenges for project professionals include trying to deliver more projects at once, lack of skills for project professionals, and poor resource management. Many of them have the potential to improve with a project management tool, whether it is optimizing the recruitment process, prioritizing projects, or accurately monitoring resource use.
