120VC Smartsheet for Project Leaders that #GSD

We’ve learned that Project Management Tools are a lot like choosing the best motorcycle; it all depends on what you plan to do with it. If you want to go 180 miles per hour on a straight stretch of freeway, a sportbike is the best. If you’re going to ride on the dirt or sand, then a dirt bike is best. And if you want to cruise around, take in the sights and look like a badass, a cruiser is the way to go.

Our clients all ascribe to different tools. Some use MS Project; others use Smartsheet, etc… So we remain flexible and figure out how to apply our proven Project Leadership best practices to our client’s PM Tool “Du Jour.” The only tool that is NEVER the best PM tool is Excel.

So eventually, you have to select a tool that isn’t Excel; now what? It’s time to use it to Get Sh*t Done! The first step, sign up for a training course and learn how to use the tool. But wait… Did you want to learn how the tool works? Or do you want to learn how to use the tool to ROCK a project all the way to completion?
