You must have noticed the trend.
Goods have become inexpensive and widespread. In fact, in the past 50 years, goods-producing jobs in the U.S. have declined by more than a third. The economy is changing. The most successful professionals among us are putting their resources into delivering services instead of goods.
The facts confirm this. In that same 50 years, services jobs have increased by more than 65 percent. The trend is global.
As a result, we need better project-management software to help us meet our margins predictably and profitably. We need to understand the vast opportunity this type of software provides. Delivering services is no longer an educated estimate of resource planning, deadlines, and scalability. It is a science — one that the correct project-management software can largely automate and turn into a repeatable, enjoyable, and creative process.
