There are numerous experts out there and they all claim to havedifferentiators. The way I see it, you have to pick and choose the pieces that anyof these companies offer that is best for you and your company. I have beeninvolved in some very large projects and unless they are managed closely andproperly, they can introduce scope creep and head way out of control. On theflipside, it is very easy to lose sight of the actual project if you are too focused onthe project management tools. I have also been on smaller projects where theproject manager tried to use a full blown software tool to manage the tasks. Itwas overwhelming and overkill. They were too concerned about the tool andspent way too much time forcing the project to fit the model. There needs to bea balance. Tools are useful, but need to be used the right way.BillWilliam DempseyThread:Neubauer Question 4Post:RE: Neubauer Question 4Author:Posted Date:February 29, 2016 9:40 PMStatus:PublishedShaneThanks for sharing this information about CACI.
