How To Successfully Manage Projects


Despite having drive and a bold vision for the future direction of your business, when running your own SME it can become all too easy to become lost in a seemingly never-ending to-do list. After all it’s your energy, talent and tenacity that’s got your business where it is today – however when you’re so bogged down in the day-to- day running of your business, you inevitably take your focus away from the strategic side. Projects start to pile up and all those great ideas you’re having never see the light of day; those amazing events you have in mind never happen, product launches are hurriedly put together or don’t happen at all, and that possible office move doesn’t get off the ground... Where’s the time to research options let alone manage the project through to fruition?

There are a huge range of excellent project management apps out there, all designed to help us keep on top of organising and delivering our projects. One of the best project management tools is Trello. It works by organising your projects into boards, where you can collaborate with colleagues in real time. By splitting your task down to (for example) speakers, venues, catering, marketing etc, you can easily see in one glance: what's being worked on, who's working on what, and where something is in the process. You can also assign work, and comment on others’ work, and a whole range of other tasks. Here’s an example of a Trello project board, which shows you how Trello can be used to help you plan a conference. Once used effectively Trello becomes an essential tool to assist you in organising and delivering the best projects and events. It’s deceptively simple to use, and very versatile – as the makers themselves say - there are a million ways to use Trello!
