Khaled, Smartsheet user
I will never use any PM tool ever again. Smartsheet is the way to go. It’s quick, easy, and flexible. I can program it to do whatever I want. Since building out my framework, it has been rolled out to the PMO office...clients ask me to use my template and framework too. It’s been a resounding success. It’s improved my company and client project outcomes.

- Khaled Dajani, Senior Technical Project Manager, Digital Marketing Company
