Managers have a considerable job and finding the right tools for their needs takes time, research, trial, and error. Managers have to get all team members heading in the same direction and motivate each individual to contribute their part.
To do a good job they have to keep everything clear, documented, organized, and accessible, both for their team and superiors.
So, to help you find the tools you need, here is a list with a short description of what we consider in our experience the 7 best team management software for top performance.

The number 1 software development tool, Jira can be used as a project management app by all types of teams for planning and producing great work.
