What is Truth?
Truth is defined as the true or actual state of a matter; conformity with fact or reality; a verified or indisputable fact, proposition, principle, or the like. Here is a question for you. Do our project management software tools (whether high-end, low-end, spreadsheets, or whatever) reflect truth? And if not, what is needed for them to reflect truth?
I would say that most tools do not reflect truth. They simply reflect whatever was entered into the system, which may be true or not. One of the primary objectives when implementing any type of project management software system is to ensure that what is there is true. Otherwise, it is not useful. Is this easy to do? No, it is hard. Is it worth it? Only you can answer that. What is the value of being able to, at any point in time, look at information, know that it is accurate, and be able to make a good decision on the spot?
