Tools of the trade

a survey of project management tools

In contemporary computing environments, project managers have been supplied with tools to assist in their project management tasks. This paper reports the results of a nationwide survey of 1,000 randomly selected members of the Project Management Institute. The results include the identification of tools used, level of use, types of uses, satisfaction with the tools employed, level of training received, and adequacy of the tool's use. The respondents not only listed traditional project management tools, but also several nontraditional tools. In general, project managers seem to be satisfied with the tools available.
