What are the widely used project management tools

I have used Microsoft Project in the past but is that a good tool to master & being used widely across the industry or is the tide shifting to more open-source PM alternatives? What are the recommended PM tools & techniques to learn?

Thanks for your suggestions & inputs.

For technology projects, Jira is extremely popular. It has a lot of third-party add-ins and a very open and accessible data model which makes it relatively easy to get data in and out of it. Jira is also cheaper than the MS project.

people are also starting to use Asana and Trello for Agile projects

Whenever such surveys are conducted, MS Excel, Word & PowerPoint are the most widely used tools. For scheduling in small to mid-sized contexts, MS Project is a commonly used tool, but for larger projects, especially those in construction, more robust schedulers such as Oracle's Primavera are found.

If you want to expand your knowledge about the project and portfolio scheduling and risk simulation look at Spider Project
