I’m looking to improve my project management system and was wondering what people consider the best PIMs for that. By “best” I mean versatile, comprehensive but also easy (and quick) to use. I have a PC (Win7), and web/cloud and collaboration is not essential, though syncing with iPod/iPad is always a bonus.

Currently I have a very rudimentary system, whereby for my main project I’ve created Excel sheets with days of the week in columns and weeks in rows (15 weeks/A4 sheet), which I print out and record what I’ve accomplished by hand at the end of each day. I also use MyLife Organized (MLO) for breaking down tasks and ticking off to-dos.

I’m specifically looking for an overall project management solution, rather than a daily to-do manager or a calendar (although it’s not a problem if those are also integrated. I do already use Google Calendar, Informant HD, and Toodledo, but not in relation with my main project).

I have done a search and “project management” is mentioned 151 times on this forum, so I thought I’d rather ask for some current solutions.

I should add that MS Project is an overkill for what I’m looking for. I’m looking for something much lighter and faster to use, with not too much of a learning curve.

Well, I did look through the 151 references in the end. It seems a number of people use UltraRecall for project management, MyInfo was also mentioned. ProjectCards also looks interesting.

InfoQube seems ideal for your needs. It does project management (including Gantt charts) and is very flexible. Information in your projects can be shown in Gantts, on a calendar, in a grid. Syncing with Google Calendar is working in our dev. version and will be available soon to all.

The first app that came to mind when I read your question is MyInfo. I think you’ll find it easier and more intuitive to use than UltraRecall—at least that’s my experience with the two. The reason it came to mind for me is the ease of creating custom columns, so you can add whatever meta data you need to manage your projects.
