Managing projects with Excel: a combo you should avoid

Who has never opened Excel to lay out a plan, a budget, or just to jot down our thoughts?

It’s always there, ready, with its empty cells waiting to be filled in. And yet, despite its apparent straightforwardness, managing projects with Excel can quickly become a recurring nightmare. A nightmare where files multiply like rabbits and formulas become as intricate as the plot of a Christopher Nolan movie.

Excel is a fantastic tool for many purposes. However, when it comes to project management, it turns out to be a bit like trying to cut a fillet with a spoon: although technically possible, it is incredibly frustrating and inefficient.

Tasks get lost between sheets, due dates become a puzzle worthy of Sherlock Holmes, and collaboration among team members turns into a table tennis match of emailed files. And what happens when a file gets overwritten or lost? Hopefully, you’ll enjoy doing it all over again.
