How to select a Project Management Software

  • Concept: For every level of maturity ( of the organisation, of the individual people ), there is a corresponding suitable project management software. E.g. for the lowest level of maturity, standalone project management softwaretools ( spreadsheets, Microsoft Project, some standalone OpenSource project management software.. ) used by individuals are the right choice :-)
