Everyone is a Project Manager According to 2018 Collaboration Survey

Any project manager knows that collaboration can be a struggle, especially when teams are relying on disparate and outdated tools. Such applications affect daily interactions and can severely limit productivity. However, this doesn’t have to be the case. With Planview Projectplace, teams can improve collaboration to deliver products to market faster, keep project costs within budget, and easily meet those critical deadlines.

Earlier this year, Planview conducted a global survey that was answered by 650 respondents to garner further insight into exactly why teams continue to struggle with project collaboration. The results were both surprising and enlightening, with a key takeaway being that “everyone is a project manager.”

Here’s the gist: two out of three professionals are not project management certified, yet they are expected to manage projects. That can sound rather daunting, but then throw into the mix the fact that teams are becoming more varied and virtual, and those professionals are shaking in their boots.

The truth is, collaboration doesn’t have to be so overwhelming, and even if you’re an accidental project manager, you can still effectively manage your projects with ease—the key is in your approach. Prevent your business from suffering the consequences of using too many different tools by adopting a common, consolidated approach, enabling teams to better communicate, collaborate, and get work done.

Planview ProjectPlace is here to help you get started. For further details into the survey results, check out the eBook, “Everyone is a Project Manager,” then visit the website, where you can sign up for a free ProjectPlace trial to test it out for yourself. Believe me when I say you will start noticing the benefits immediately, not to mention the lessened stress if you are an accidental project manager.
