We’re all project managers! Whether you are an attorney responsible for a matter, a secretary revising a Word template, an IT administrator installing new servers or a full-time project manager of a 10-person team, you must plan, execute and communicate project status to a variety of stakeholders, both inside and outside of the law firm.

But, we don’t all come to the task of project management with the same training and tools at our disposal. Some, like the professional project manager, may be comfortable with Gantt charts, network diagrams, CPM, work breakdown structures and the like. For the majority of us, however, these concepts are foreign and confusing. And, because one key purpose of any project management tool is to communicate deliverables and status, it’s not enough that we understand the reports output by our project management tool — our stakeholders must understand them too.
