1Inefficient Collaboration Tools Hindering Project Management Teams
With project management emerging as a common role for professionals these days, better strategies and tech tools are required to enable teams to collaborate more effectively, according to a recent survey from Planview. The resulting report, titled “Everyone Is a Project Manager,” reveals that collaboration inefficiencies are literally costing employees nine weeks a year in terms of wasted work time. To help reduce this, survey respondents said they’d like to see IT tools that enhance planning, with dashboards that can track multiple projects at once. A total of 650 global professionals who manage and/or work on projects took part in the research. The following slide show presents highlights from the survey, with charts provided courtesy of Planview.
