That is a question I often hear and am often asked.  Aside from hiring or having in your toolkit a great project manager, there are an endless sea of project management tools with increasing complexity and learning curves. It really depends on your project.

A simple excel spreadsheet and a weekly conference call with stakeholders may cover all you need depending on the complexities. This could be a major time and headache saver.

If you are routinely working on the same type of project with many vendors, architects, contractors, and sites where many people need access to the same database of information, a more advanced custom system could really help (ie: Lucernex, Evoco, Others). Remember though, signing on to one of these larger systems requires a time and training investment both on your part as well as the vendors you expect to utilize the system and this may outweigh the benefits of using such a system.

I have regularly used both systems for different clients based on their needs, expectations, and/or systems they have in place already, successfully managing hundreds of projects across the country.

Two last important points to remember: Communication during the project is key as is the vetting of vendors and contractors during the pre-bid phase.

Although it is a plus point if you will deliver your projects using these. One thing that you require to possess is the passion and the creativity towards your project. Putting all of your heart and effort in all the things that you need to perform.

Ensure that your work area is clean and neat. Make sure it is free from any debris that might obstruct you, cause a tripping hazard or be ignited by hot sparks.

Hey Dan,

I agree that a skillful Project manager is a great asset but the actual tools and methodologies will also make a difference. Can you elaborate on specific tools for managing vendors & clients? That would be very helpful.
Thanks

I feel ya, communication really is the key to a healthy and balanced relation between two people but there are times when an organization requires an agile methodology for their work, a consistent plan doesn't always work out.
