Emily Skarzenski asked about less expensive project management tools.

I am using Softkey's project management software. I dont' recall the exact
price, but I believe it is around the $35-40 range. It's a lot "simpler" than
e.g. Microsoft's project management tool; there is no critical path charting
capabilities and so on. However, Softkey's lets you breakdown the projects by
tasks and milestones, group related tasks, assign them to individuals, assign a
dollar amount per type of task so that you can track how much money is spent.
It can be enlightening :-)

In my experience, the "problems" associated with using software tools for
project management are more related discipline than to the software
functionality. It takes commitment to update and use the data :-)
