People love to organize things in spreadsheets—and that’s ok. But when you abuse spreadsheets and continue to use them even though you know they are causing work issues, then you may have an unhealthy dependence or even a serious addiction.
In particular, trying to manage projects on them is a recipe for disaster. Here are just some of the issues and reasons why spreadsheets simply don’t work for project management:
- Poor Visibility: spreadsheets don’t give teams an accurate picture of what’s really going on; making immediate adjustments to scope, budget, schedules and resources isn’t an option.
- Collaboration Woes: spreadsheets automatically put things in static files, which makes sharing resources, brainstorming strategies or aligning communications a constant struggle.
- Lack of Governance: with spreadsheets there is no way to effectively and efficiently manage intake, approvals, phase gate deliverables and tracking.
Watch this webinar and discover a better way to manage projects without relying on the limitations of static spreadsheets. From real-time collaboration and automated workflows to full governance and portfolio management, see what a difference a modern project management solution can make.
