    Default Project planning/tracking applicaitons

    Just wanted to know what other PM's out there use to track, plan, resource their projects. I'm increasingly wanting a tool that has many PM elements in one app rather than spreading it over MS Project, Excel, word logs etc.

    Any suggestions on good PM tools out there?

    I always use client toolsets so 99% of the time that's MS Project and Office products mostly Excel.

    WHS.

    The exception was Hydra which relied on the team leaders or work package developers putting in accurate timesheets and estimates-to-completion, which of course, they didn't.

    My principle tool is called "Going over to them and asking them, then asking them again a different way until they tell the truth, then updating the MS Project plan and the Excel quality log accordingly, if I can be arsed."

    You should just have a list of jobs and an estimate for each job and if the devs never reach that delivery for the job on the estimate date you should just revise the date and then you can ask them again if they have completed on that new date, if they have not completed on that date just ask them again for a date and repeat the cycle.

    Everyone is doing Agile.

    I love Agile.
