“If you have projects
to organize, you owe it to yourself to check out Project KickStart. Organizing and scheduling a new project is much like writing
a book; the most difficult part is getting started. Project KickStart is an application designed to help you get your projects
rolling with minimum fuss and aggravation. Some project-management applications, such as Microsoft Project, don't offer much
in the way of brainstorming tools to help begin your planning. Project KickStart does, using a simpler approach."
"Project KickStart's name illustrates its approach: Its objective
is to help you get your project off the ground (and increase the odds that it will be successful) by providing a structured
way to divide the project into manageable chunks... It's real secret is that the project holds your hand and walks you through
each planning step so that you can't get lost.
"Project KickStart leads you through the process of establishing
a project plan. At every step along the way, it gives you a library of relevant information, e.g. a Phase Library to help
identify the Phases in your project. "Starting with a good plan is critical.
A good plan aims people in the right directly, and lets them see the directions that everyone else will be taking. That's
one of the keys to project success. For smaller projects, it may not be cost-effective to continuously refine the plan. A
good initial project plan may be all that is required."
"Project KickStart is an application that is being raved about by software
reviewers and professional project managers alike, as it has something to offer both the experienced and novice project manager."
