I am currently researching the subject of work management software, and I have found that some people find multitasking to be a good project management principle. For me, however, I think some multitaskers go way too fast. You see those people every day actually.

You see him tailgating you on the way to work. He's frustrated with traffic, moving back and forth between lanes, racing ahead. Stopped at the light, you look over at him. He's entering a location on his GPS with one hand, eating his breakfast hot-pocket in the other. He's listening to loud music while talking to someone through his bluetooth device. The light turns green and he zooms off as if his old Honda Accord was a sports car. And, after he keeps meeting the same rush hour traffic at each subsequent red light, it's a wonder he hasn't killed anyone.

The same goes with project management and project management technology. With software, for example, some project managers want to go way too fast.

I recently heard a quote that went something like this: it takes one woman 9 months to create a baby - you can't impregnate 9 women to get a baby in one month. Some things take time.

Glad you found us. There are a number of tools to assist project managers and especially smooth out the scheduling process so that the start-stop-start phenomenon can be reduced or avoided. If you'd like we can furhter discuss these tools offline. Drop me an email at info[at]pmwarstories[dot]com and we can schedule a phone conversation.
