About the Presentation
You already know and use project management software, and have your favorite. You’ve even expanded into some specialty software for tracking risk management or portfolio management. You have software for tracking your budget, resources, and doing complex Gantt charts. Those are all really good and helpful.
But what about all the other tech tools out there that could help with important aspects of your project management work, like requirements gathering, user adoption, and communication? Have you leveraged technology into all aspects of your work as much as you could, should, or want to?
In this workshop we’ll help you tech up your work by exploring several different categories of technology tools and dive into some specific examples in order to learn how we can apply different technologies to our work. We'll demonstrate how the tools can add value to what you do, save you time, and support virtual working environments. Finally, you'll walk away with the complete list covering 16 different categories and over 80 examples of applications that can inspire new ways of achieving amazing results.
