Description

In the current business environment, companies around the world are conducting their business operations through project implementation. Moreover, project management as a profession is developed by bodies of knowledge and companies are investing in capacity building and in improvement of their internal procedures. Nowadays, different standards are used in a field of project management. However, despite the investment in the field of project management and hundreds of hours of delivered training to project managers, around 60% of the initiated projects in the world are failing and project scheduling is among identified reasons for project failure. Companies that are implementing projects, are using different project management logical frameworks like PMP, PRINCE2 or ITIL[4], however, none of those logical frameworks and guidelines are not providing any suggestion regarding the use of software for project scheduling.
