Project Management on Your Phone…Sing Along!
I can’t sing. I can’t carry a tune. And, I admit that I am not even a Peyton Manning fan (sorry Broncos, I am a Colorado native so I shouldn’t admit this out loud!). But I LOVE “Football on Your Phone” — what a great marketing tool advertising Direct TV’s NFL Ticket. The hilarious video featuring Peyton and his brother Eli has gone viral. I’ve been humming the tune ever since I watched it a few days ago.
Of course, I started thinking about the concept – why shouldn’t we have football on our phones? We have apps for practically anything else we need these days. This led me to thinking about what Architectural and Engineering firms need on their phones. It hit me right away: Project Management.
Your Project Managers spend a lot of time at client meeting and project locations and they need instant access to project information. A PM should be able to get on their iPhone (or iPad) and be able to look up a client address/phone number, to record project notes or even to see the Tasks assigned to the project. And, of course, you’ll want to enter your time. Daily time entry is much easier to keep up with when you don’t have to be at your desk.
Now, you might not be “on a date with Simone, sitting on a throne or buttering a scone” as the lyrics indicate – but you might be in your company vehicle, sitting in a field, eating your lunch from a paper bag when it just hits you that you need to check the outstanding tasks on the project or a team member might have called you up to discuss an assignment and you’ll surely agree you need “Project Management on Your Phone”.
