    Hi Michael,

    About point #1: Having staff wait for work.. Are you suggesting that the project manager should pad the project schedule as much as possible, to the extent that there’ll be times when (some or all) resources have nothing to do?

    You’ve rightly said that traditional project management metrics are only important to the extent they support desired business outcomes. That’s one of the reason’s why my company has implemented a project management software to handle most project tasks across multiple projects. Right from resource allocation to task management and project collaboration. The software eases the entire project management process. Would you suggest any?
