Microsoft has published another article of mine on TechNet. This article is called “Cancelling your project without cancelling your career and will be of interest to both project managers and timesheet administrators as well, of course, to those managing stage gating processes, project management offices and project portfolios
Microsoft has published an article of mine on TechNet. This article will be of interest not only to project managers but also those deploying and configuring timesheet systems as it looks at how to determine how many charge codes to have and to what level of detail charge codes should be defined. See this post for all the links and details.
HMS Software has just released TimeControl 6.5 and it represents a major evolution of TimeControl. HMS has added a major new reporting-writing engine, a completely new link option for linking to their new alliance partner Hard Dollar’s HD project cost and estimating system and significant improvements in both performance and other functionality. See this blog post for more information.
I’ll be speaking tonight at the Montreal chapter of the Microsoft Project Users Group. “The topic is Setting your Enterprise Project Management Requirements”
