Project Tracking, Skills Assessment Tools Lessen Project Management Complexity

John Storts

We've recently added two new project management documents to the Knowledge Network wiki: Geoff Crane's Project Knowledge Area Self-Assessment and Project Tracking Tool.


It's imperative for project managers to know exactly what skills and expertise each member of the project team possesses from the outset. This spreadsheet helps project managers capture these details in order to "quickly identify any knowledge gaps or single points of failure."

Maintaining a firm grasp on all the ins and outs of a complex project can be a daunting task for even the seasoned project manager if she doesn't have the right tracking tools at hand. This spreadsheet helps project managers keep track of major project items (milestones, change requests, costs, risks, etc.) by organizing them into clearly defined categories.


These Knowledge Network tools are just the beginning of project management resources on offer at IT Business Edge. Take a look around and let our expertise--and that of our IT manager colleagues--make managing projects less complicated.
