Easy Project Management Software

It's estimated that at least 50% and perhaps as high as 90% of all projects are delivered late. Worse yet, many of these projects are also over budget.

According to one study, fewer than 10% of all projects are actively managed at all.

SmartDraw offers the easiest solution to help you take control of your project and ensure that your project is one of the 10% that is on time and on budget.

Seven Steps to Better Project Management

  1. Scope your project with mind maps
    Mind maps are a great project management tool for organizing and brainstorming, and are especially helpful for breaking down a project into smaller components. You'll want to start by identifying high level tasks and then break those tasks down into more detailed sub-tasks.
  2. Convert your mind map into a project chart
    Automatically convert your mind map to a project chart with SmartDraw's built-in features.
  3. Schedule and organize tasks into groups
    Organize project tasks and sub-tasks, assign tasks to team members, and define start dates and durations for each task.
