Project Management Software Research Project
Assume that you work at a company considering a more formal project management approach to projects. They ask you, since you are enrolled in this course, to evaluate available software and present your recommendation for a standard project management software package. You can use a company with which you are familiar, you can research a company on the Internet, or you can make up a company in need of project management software.
