I'm not a professional project manager and in my environmental consulting
practice I'm usually the only one working on a project. Regardless, I'm
offering a suggestion based on my finding and using TJ for a large wetland
mitigation bank project.
Years ago I used TimeLine in DOS for project management when I worked for
consulting companies and that was based on critical path management (CPM).
Most recently I learned that this is often not the appropriate, or most
useful, approach. The replacement is Eliyahu Goldratt's "Theory of
Constraints" as described in his book, "The Goal."
While the path to the project's goal might appear to senior executives as
the most critical element, in practice where the bottleneck is located (the
biggest constraint) tends to define the project's progress.
I encourage you to read The Goal and Goldratt's follow up book, "It's Not
Luck." You might find his approach highly useful in your project(s).
