The New Rules of Leadership - Forbes | Web Project Management | Scoop.it
Spring is in the air, the days are getting longer and the crocuses are poking up their hopeful heads. Yet, these remain bleak times for too many job seekers, even leaders and managers with impressive resumes.
TonyaPriceConsulting's insight:

Great advice for Web Project Managers. You can't succeed in leading Web teams if you aren't up to date with the latest innovations and the only way to achieve that is continuous learning...so why are training budgets the first thing companies freeze or cut in hard times?

10 great online collaboration tools for designers

10 great online collaboration tools for designers | Web Project Management | Scoop.it
These interactive, real-time collaboration tools make designers' work easier - wherever you are in the world.

 

A team of designers does not always work in the same office; you work in distributed groups, and clients can be based all over the world. This is where collaboration tools come in - they make it easier and faster for designers to get feedback and approve artwork in a professional manner.

 

These apps come in many varying formats, with some that are created specifically for designers, some that serve as a concept crafting whiteboard, those with tools to make simple annotations, and some are all-in-one web apps that include an element of project management.

 

Here we gather together 10 of the best available online tools to allow designers to take part in collaborational work in real time.

 

The first five tools are for collaboration on existing work and mock-ups, whereas the latter five (from 06. to 10.) are best used for concept drafting and brainstorming.

TonyaPriceConsulting's insight:

I'm always on the lookout for tools a Web team can use to increase their efficiency and love survey articles listing tools. This is a good collection for designers.

How to setup a progress meeting. Free download of template to track actions and ensure follow up.
TonyaPriceConsulting's insight:

I like templates. I find taking the time to create one forces me to think about the information I need to capture during the project and to consider how I will use that information. We all have to do status meeting reports but this progress meeting template can help capture the critical info. I would use this for the Web team and then write up my executive/stakeholder status meeting report from this.

 

Remember though - too many reports will have you never actually managing the project, just managing the paperwork! Limit your reports to what improve your project process!
