    Great stuff @Unia - we use plenty of Gantt charts over here as well :) . Do you have any resources you can share about work breakdown structures or critical path analyses?

    Would like to know if many are using Business Process Management (BPM) tools. If Yes, may I ask what the BPM tools used are. Thank you.

    Thank you very much for the replies. A special thanks to the person who mentioned of Oracle. In recent study I conducted, it was determined that Oracle is an integrated BPM application. Would you say that is correct. I also considered best of breed applications for BPM. Thanks again.

    Myself and colleagues have used googledocs for sharing documents that are more than 25MB. We have also used Hangouts for virtual meetings. We have had a masterclass for deployment of Office 365 and are awaiting roll - out to see how it creates a seamless work environment similar to googledocs. We hace used work break down schedule in a different way but not as is explained in this course. This course provides improvement to the work break down schedule we have used previsously.
