In many organizations, the role of project management software is often misunderstood.

Some executives may see project management tools as an added, unnecessary cost. But, in a world where companies waste $122 million for every $1 billion invested due to poor project performance, that couldn’t be further from the truth.

In fact, a study by PwC found that “use of commercially available PM software drives higher levels of portfolio performance and greater satisfaction with an organization’s PM practices.”

Yet, many teams still find themselves using outdated or inadequate tools. As a result, project managers and their teams waste time and resources on tasks that can be simplified, streamlined, or even eliminated if the right tool was in place.

So, how do you convince your executive team that you need a modern project management solution? How do you overcome common objections around budget, timing, and implementation?
