On-line Gantt Chart first: Selecting your next PM Software.

There are various important aspects when it comes to Project Management software selection, mostly depending from the nature of the business you are active, or you’re planning to enter. In general, large organizations need powerful systems that can interconnect with already existing platforms (ERP, CRM, HRM), while smaller companies primarily look to maintain their agility, while getting organized and a bit stiffer at the same time. In both cases, basic functionality must be rich in capabilities to plan works and monitor progress, easily and of course, on-line. Among the most important, we point Gantt charts, Kanban diagram, work-in-progress dashboards,What is an on-line Gantt chart?A Gantt chart is a visual tool to show scheduled and actual progress of projects and it is being used for more than 100 years, as a management tool. More analytically, a Gantt chart gives valuable information about:The various activities within a project Each start/ending of the activities The duration of the activities The connection/ relation between the activities Project start/ end As stated on www.gantt.com, it shows who has to do what and when, and this is typically shows with bar-type diagrams, as shown below:Why you should have your Gantt chart on-line?As Project Management is not something new, Gantt chart is also shown that is been there for about a century. Nowadays, what matters most is efficiency maximization and having the information spread with the speed of the internet, to the right person (stakeholders) is vital. However, there are a few things you should be aware, according to Orange Business Services which marks the pros and cons of using Gantt charts:Advantages:  - You shape the big picture of the project’s complexity - You point your thoughts about how to organize the works need to be carried out - You declare capacity in what you’re doing - You consider time constraints - You offer transparency to the stakeholders   Disadvantages:- You can often flirt with high complexity on some projects - The annotation system (bars) represent time and amount of work - Unless it will be highly maintained during the project lifetime, it loses value - Usually it’s rather difficult to be sheen in one scroll/ page Available Gantt chart software products on-line.There are two options available, in general. The first is to get a Gantt as an independent tool, or to make a selection of a bigger platform, usually a Project Management platform. We’ve seen, and surely we will be seeing teams to use standard Excels to carry on with work scheduling, cope to communicate files stored on local or shared drives.

According to a team of researchers, there is evidence of 683 patients showed a prominent peak of 21% in heart attacks, strokes and blood clots, between Monday 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. During these hours the stress hormone, cortisol, which reflects the nervous system, increases blood pressure dramatically. Inevitable, Monday morning wakening is loaded with office reminders fusion, especially for those carrying increased responsibility, like Managers, Division Heads and CEOs.Scientific evidence guide us to seek for distress factors, unless we want to mess up with the cruel statistics. Surely, physical activity matters, as well as the rest of the tips doctors advise for precaution. It would be extremely surprising though to expect advises from your Cardio or G.P., about how to make things work better at the office. Some colleagues attend Stress avoidance guru’s courses, looking for deep breath solution techniques and alternative mindsets based on creating strong foundation to emotionally handle non collaborative environments. It’s the system, stupid, which you need to control, not inhale-exhale.Technology today allows monitoring the heart’s performance of a manager, well equipped with a strong Project Management platform that communicates with Tasks, Processes, internal/external e-mails, Projects Monitoring, Gantt Charts, Kanban boards, calendar, files, clients, etc.At the diagram below there is a set of cardio metrics during a 37 y.o. manager’s  typical day at work, powered with Comidor for Project Management and geared with a heart belt which tracks data on a mobile device, as well as his projects progress. As a chartered engineer, I believe that numbers don’t lie, and I am more than sensitive during analysis, due to my family history record.It can be concluded that personal characteristics are critical, though keeping organized matters most during the rush hour, as well as keeping your heart’s average bpm as low as 50% of the maximum loading conditionsConclusively, no one wants to deal with the cardio statistics, neither with the milestones and deliverables of a project. Today, life has been complicated, following the speed of business advancements.  Do not expect significant improvement on your Monday morning heart rate metrics, unless you find yourself within a truly smart Project Management software toolset which is bind with the Enterprise Collaboration features (tasks, processes, calendar, mails), your CRM and all the good stuff which are here and there at the office. Today, there are powerful platforms offered on Cloud, that you make all things working connected together, as a proof that you are part of a living organization.
