It is interesting how we tend to always come back to the simple tools to get the job done. The ubiquitous spreadsheet is used in so many places where custom built software exists to do the job. The reason this is so is that we want to manage the work/team rather than the software.

Do you ever have a problem in bringing in the different distributed spreadsheets to write them back to the master control Project Planner spreadsheet?

If other people are doing what you are doing and have a problem, here is a tool that I have found. I’ve blogged it at:

Again it comes back to managing the people and the work that they have to do rather than get bogged down in software/spreadhseet issues.
