To Excel as a Project Manager, You Need More Than Excel

Fredericksburg, VA (PressExposure) April 01, 2008 -- "Because many organizations already own and use Microsoft's Excel spreadsheet software, it is often used to capture and report project metrics - despite its limitations that make it an awkward and costly way to manage performance"

Distributive Management offers its next in the series of informative webinars to explore DataDrill Express compared to the basic functionality offered by Microsoft's Excel software. Express is an essential requirement in providing decision makers with the tools and information necessary to effectively manage projects. The benefits of switching from Excel to DataDrill Express can be significant.
