All projects have assets that belong to the project and/or task. The common-use file sharing frequently employed on networks seems to be the lowest common denominator for project teams. The challenge with even the best file storage systems on the internal network is that team members still complain that they cannot find critical documents. The other problem with this method is that third parties usually cannot access these internal files. This often results in the project manager resorting to e-mailing assets to these outside resources, which can result in version control problems.

A Web-based project management solution can solve these issues by posting all project assets in the centralized repository that is accessible by all participants, providing version control, and e-mail notifications. Another good feature to look for is the ability for the project team to collaborate on project files and assets by posting comments or threads. That way, the entire project history is captured in the documents repository.

Cynthia West, Vice President at Project Insight, and her team speak with project managers, directors of operations, vice presidents of professional services, chief financial officers, and other project team members every day. They hear familiar stories repeatedly and have identified some trends, or commonalities, that regularly affect project management success. This slideshow highlights five of the most common project management challenges identified by Project Insight and ways Web-based project management software may be able to help.
