I'm hoping someone out there has some ideas that can help me. For years, I have struggled with how to keep up with the workload of my employees to make sure that we do not fall behind on tasks. Our job involves working with up to six different Project Managers on as many as 15 different projects, each with their own independent timelines, customers, and Microsoft Project schedules (hint - Contract Pharmaceutical Manufacturing).
Trying to keep abreast of all those schedules during the Weekly Review drives me crazy! The PM's do not talk to each other or try to integrate their schedules into some sort of Master Schedule. I'm looking for something simple of my own that pulls from those schedules into one for my own use - but don't want to spend hours each week struggling with Microsoft project.
The other great thing is that our company does not allow us to install any special software outside the corporate standard, so I'm tied to the standard Microsoft Office suite.
Any ideas anyone has would be greatly appreciated!
