It’s a big decision, choosing project management software for your team or organization. Even if you’re using a mess of static spreadsheets to run a portfolio of projects, and you can’t keep track of anything—embarking on a software search can feel overwhelming (and time consuming).
What if you could get there faster with an arsenal of good questions? As a project management software company, we talk to a lot of technology leaders who are looking for a better way to manage projects, but sometimes it’s hard to know where or how to begin the evaluation conversation when you’re the one doing the evaluating.
Here’s a list of 9 questions for you to consider when you’re looking for a new project management solution.
- How does it work—what’s your differentiator?
- What kind of teams and businesses benefit from this software?
- Who on the team typically uses this tool?
- What kind of project management know-how do you need to use it?
- How does this software help us collaborate and communicate better?
- How will the software make it easier for me to do my job more effectively?
- What kind of project information is visible, and to whom?
- What are the top three business benefits for a company/team like mine?
