Hi Frank and hi Douglas and thany you for your answers.
I wish to try to clarify my situation.
1. My projects are small project (3-6 task each of 8-40 hours).
If I understand correctly you suggest to use CC and a ToDo list and
don't break the tasks in smaller tasks. Douglas, what do you mean
with ""... fast track" label for these mini-projects, which allowed
them to be managed inside the executive's normal 2-4 week update
period. ... "?
2. The customer's involvement: suppose this: I have a 5 days task
wich has to start with a meeting with the CEO of the customer
company. I receive the communication that the prior task is finishing
( It will take as late two days for finishing). How can I plan the
meeting without knowing exactly when the prior task will be finished?
Can I plan a meeting with the CEO with so small warning?
3. Right now I manage 30 projects for 30 diffeent customers with 25
peoples and my business partner do the same with the same resources
pool. Which is the best software for manage this? Can I find
algorithmus for the CC?
4. My projects have a follow up of work and they need support (8-16
hours montly). Do I manage also this tasks with CC?
Thank you for your patience
