PM Software

As mentioned in my texts, there are hundreds of software tools you can use to assist in managing projects. Below are links to a few resources to get free trials and learn how to use some of them. The first four will be highlighted in my upcoming book, An Introduction to Project Management, Seventh Edition.

Microsoft Project: Below are a few links to this popular tool.

Jira: Anyone can get an unlimited free version of Jira (with limited capabilities). You can also access a Product Guide and many free tutorials from this site.

MindView: This software allows you to create mindmaps which can be used to create a WBS and Gantt chart.

Basecamp: This software includes several different tools to help teams put all of their project data and communications in one place. Instructors and students can request a free account with no time limit from Basecamp.
