How to Use Google Calendar as a Project Management Tool

How to Use Google Calendar as a Project Management Tool | Web Project Management | Scoop.it
Google Calendar is great for managing appointments, but that's not all it can do. The sharing, searchability, timeline view, and other features make Google Calendar a simple but powerful project management tool.
TonyaPriceConsulting's insight:

If you can't afford to pay a monthly charge for a project management software solution, and if your projects are not complicated, then you might be able to get away with using Google Calendar as a Project Managment tool. If you are paying for a solution that limits the number of projects you can manage, then you can use Google calendars to handle those small projects. This article tells you how. Read the comments too for a couple of suggestions on how to take advantage of additional programs that extend the usability of google calendar.

The Four Agreements of Project Success | eMagine's B2B Blog

TonyaPriceConsulting's insight:

There are some good points here, although I don't agree with number 3: Don't Make Assumptions. Everyone makes assumptions. The trick isn't not to make assumptions but to make sure everyone knows what your assumptions are so they can question them and determine if they agree with them or not. Learning to recognize your assumptions and articulating them is an important skill for the Web project manager, the team and the client.

Rofori Adds Dropbox Integration to Private Team Collaboration and File Sharing Cloud Service

TonyaPriceConsulting's insight:

Using large white boards or electronic white boards to display projects and status is a topic that has come up in a few conversations I've had lately with Web Project Managers. Rofori is a interesting part of this solution as it allows Web teams to follow messages and conversations. It is cloud based so displaying these messages on monitors around the team room serves the same function (for less money) than an electronic white board and the info is up to date. Now that Dropbox integration is available teams can access files efficiently. Definitely worth checking out if you are considering this option for keeping your Web team on the same page.

Designers Rejoice, Froont Wants To Keep Developers Out Of The Responsive Web Design Process | TechCrunch

Designers Rejoice, Froont Wants To Keep Developers Out Of The Responsive Web Design Process | TechCrunch | Web Project Management | Scoop.it
Inventure-backed Froont has launched in public beta today with a web-based tool that aims to make it easy for designers to create, prototype and share responsive website designs, without the need to code.
TonyaPriceConsulting's insight:

Every design team I managed usually had the designer and the programmer at odds with each other's approach at one point or another if not all the time. Few teams realize the creative potential the two points of view can bring to the project. Helping them understand that the two approaches is a strength, and doesn't need to be a contingeous point is one of the values a Web Project Manager can bring to the team. 

 

Froont's approach creates a situation in which the programmer's point of view is subjugated to the designer's vision. This looks like a valuable tool, but rather than having the designer alone create the vision, consider having the programmer and the designer use the tool together. Your usability and innovation will benefit.
