Is it the tools, or the project manager?
I see people getting hung up on the tool. Should we use MS-Project Version 2000, or 2003, or 2007?
I hear excuses of "We can't manage well, because our company only has an antiquated version of MS-Project"
Nonsense. It is not the tool. It is expertise and mindset that delivers projects.
A project manager with expertise and mindset with a pencil and napkin or Excel spreadsheet will win out over a naive project manager with MS-Project Version 2034.
Don't hide behind excuses of the tools.
If your projects are going South, then look in the mirror and get help to identify areas of weakness and learn the required skills to send your projects North again.
