Support tools

There are a great many project support tools on the market, most of them software-based. Most provide helpful but limited support in developing and maintaining a plan. However, during recent years, the features they include have become more sophisticated. There is now software that will capture progress information and share the resulting analysis in appropriate formats with the rest of the organisation.

Despite these advances, project tools remain limited by the data they contain, the people who operate them and the organisation's capacity to absorb them into its working practices. Because of the complex nature of their installation, organisations can be reluctant to implement software tools that may have to satisfy the needs of many stakeholders and can affect working practices. Expectations of the value they can deliver compared with the operational risk of their installation should be carefully considered.
