"Just Enough" Project Management

Have you outgrown trying to manage all your projects using email or Trello, but tools like Jira and Project are complete overkill? 

As an experienced project manager, I subscribe to the belief from the Agile Software Development Manifesto to value "Individuals and interactions over processes and tools". You don't want to spend more time managing the process than actually doing the work. But at the same time, how do you keep your projects within scope, budget and timeline? 

Enter Asana, a highly flexible project management system that is also free. It can be totally customized to your work situation so that it is "just enough" for your project management needs. 

Topics include: 

  • Getting your clients out of email 
  • Benefits for your development team
  • Managing different project types - maintenance, new builds, testing
  • Controlling scope using multiple projects
  • When to move from free to Premium
  • Using Private vs. Public projects
  • Using custom fields for workflow
  • Building Trello like boards
  • Creating Calendars 
  • Integrations with your other favorite tools

Even if you use Asana now you will learn some new tips and tricks or I would love to hear about some of yours!
