Effective task management is collaborative and goes beyond the basics. Tasks provide an opportunity to not just plan project work, but draw team members together to create a synergistic view of not just what needs to be done but how things are really going.
User entered percent complete estimates are notoriously unreliable to truly zero in on where a task actually is. Too many tasks seem to be 90% complete for the last 30% of the effort.
There's a better way.
Using a simple and much more analytical approach, the estimated hours required to complete a task is calculated using actual hours and the estimated remaining hours. Team members think much more concretely when asked to provide the hours required to complete a task at a given point in time, without considering actual hours or the original estimate. Just what will it take to get it over the finish line from this point forward.
