Articles About Managing And Controlling Projects
We published several articles this year covering how project managers control and manage projects and tasks, conduct project risk management and project planning, navigate project management in relation to org culture and other departments, and work with clients and internal stakeholders.
Project Management Methodologies Articles
The agile project management and Scrum world, along with the number of new and improved agile methodologies, is ever-growing. Even so, the traditional waterfall methodology keeps on trucking, alongside overlooked strategies that can be useful for certain aspects of PM, like mind mapping.
Digital Project Management Career Articles
These articles focus on project management careers, and PM careers in digital in particular. They offer updated perspectives on the PM career path and where PMs can go beyond the senior or PMO level of project management. You’ll also find resources for keeping up with the changing world of project management, a critical career move.
Enterprise Project Management Articles
Tackling project management at the enterprise level? It’s no small feat. These might help! We’ve covered managing portfolios at the enterprise level, enterprise PMOs, enterprise methodologies, and more.
Resource Management Articles
We wrote a lot about resource management this year. Makes sense, given its importance and prominence within the mind of project managers both junior and senior. In these articles, there’s tips for using your PM software for resource management, templates and examples, and detailed processes you can import into your work right away.
Project Management Workflow Articles
Building and improving workflows and processes (or even just understanding how they work) are an important part of being a project manager. Whether you’re designing processes for your team members and need a place to start, or struggling to follow someone else’s, start building your foundational knowledge here.
Digital Project Management Tools
In 2022, we evaluated dozens of project management software tools and summarized the information in our reviews. Find descriptions of their features, main pros and cons, pricing, and what to consider when choosing different types of PM software for your projects, whether you’re at a startup or an enterprise organization.
If you’re new to project management tools:
First have a look at our comparison of the top software for project management. Then, check out our review of popular resource management tools that you can use to allocate resources (staff, rooms, equipment), map out your dependencies, and monitor for changes over time. We’ve also got a well-researched list of Microsoft Project alternatives, and a summary of project scheduling software tools.
Beyond general PM software, we’ve also got some helpful reviews of other types of tools that we published in 2022, such as project task management software, free mind mapping software, project roadmap software, and others listed below. We also published a mega-list covering tons more software than we usually do in our regular lists.
Workflow management has been on the rise, and is becoming a critical responsibility for project managers. Project managers, project teams, and other stakeholders rely heavily on these tools for effective project management and for ensuring work gets done efficiently and with all the critical steps completed.
Tools For Enterprise Project Management
There are lots of project management tools out there intended for large organizations and enterprises—if you’re working for (or running!) an enterprise, check out the following.
Resource Management Tools
Every project manager needs tools to assist with resource management, planning, and scheduling throughout projects. We covered a variety of tools that serve these purposes.
Specialized Project Management Software
Sometimes a general project management software won’t cut it. If you need something more specific to your business, industry, or projects (such as IT projects, creative projects, software development projects, marketing projects, or other), try these articles. (Or, maybe you just need a tool that can view Microsoft Project files?)
