We Listen, we learn everything we can about our current and prospective clients/customers so that we can exceed their expectations and anticipate their needs. Communications – Business communications have changed dramatically over the last ten years. Email and web conferencing have replaced phone calls and personal visits as the communication methods of choice. Since project managers often serve as lynchpins in communications among clients, team members, vendors and management, well-designed communications software is indispensable for effective project management. Diagramming – Diagramming software is used to produce graphical representations of projects and flowcharts. From a project management standpoint, this software can improve workflow and timing. Social media – If you haven’t yet received a task status update via Twitter, that is likely coming. Social media can help project managers stay on top of their teams and track progress, and, in fact, a growing number of PMs are currently using Facebook or other social media tools to communicate with project teams and clients. Project Management platforms – Last, but certainly not least, is the growing number of software applications that are designed specifically for project management tasks. These platforms come with a number of useful tools that can help manage scheduling, cost estimation, budget control, and documentation. Most PM platforms provide some mixture of communications and file sharing as well as tools for assigning tasks, milestones, and deadlines. Leverage Five's project managers have a plethora of technologies available to help optimize their project management tasks. By taking advantage of these and other software applications, project managers can become more effective and efficient and in turn provide their clients increased value. OFFERING:
