I'm working on a series of restricted collaborative websites that are geared towards me working with my clients. It's a mashup of CRM, Project/Task Management, Tracking, Documentation and Configuration Control features. Everything is controlled by PW Roles. It's a tool that allows me to have a great deal of transparency with those I work with. The objective is to easily know the who, what, when, where and how of whatever is being worked on. I call it a Collaborative Resource Management System (CRMS) which has the nickname of SomeDay.
I currently have one of these websites for each of my important clients and an additional one to keep track of my internal work. They all use the inherent native power of PW to produce specialized status reports. The websites intentionally incorporates the front-end and back-end of the PW platform.
There is a lot of information stored within this type of website, what I like to call an Information Portal. You are able to easily query a status and get a good view of what's going on.
This is a long-term ongoing project and I will update this post as more features/capabilities are added.
Meanwhile, here are a few pictures of the CRMS Tool:

That's it for now.

I think this would be a right place to discuss this topic that's very important but often neglected by developers like me.
After spending some good time on PW's forum, I've seen some very talented developers here and I've always wondered, how these guys manage their projects and get paid on time.
For example, Ryan has built this PW world alone, we're just few people who moved in this world and started loving it. When I try to think I wonder, how would have Ryan managed this project of developing ProcessWire?
For me, I think I'm a terrible project manager, so I'd love to learn from your experience.
P.S: I must make it very clear that I'm not trying to know how much any of developers here are earning every month. I just wish to know how you manage your projects & your clients. That's all.
Like pwired said, it's a way of learning, I hope you all can understand as I'm just a fresher in the field.
