Top Project Management Tools

5 Sep

Project Management is all about Communication, sharing documents, tracking time: managing a project can become a headache real quick. It’s no wonder startups love to use project management tools to help connect everyone as well as organize the handling of projects. These pieces of software help businesses manage their inner workings and even their sales.

Most businesses and startups have three major uses for Project Management software: to assign and track tasks, track time used, and manage/increase sales/conversion. The cost of the software is another consideration. To be thorough in our reviews, this article will focus on the best software for accomplishing tasks and improving management.

1. ActiveCollab: ActiveCollab helps collaborators through its time saving and easy-to-use features. Project leaders can set milestones for the team, add team members, assign tasks and get notified via e-mail for updates on the project.Not tech savvy? No problem, Collabtive’s really easy to install on your own personal website. It’s easy to get going. Even users who are not comfortable with technology can get the swing of it quickly. I’ve personally used this and I’ve seen that it is pretty flexible on giving users permission on what features to use.

File sharing, time tracking, invoicing, project management, and notifications, all in one place: in your web server.

3.Trello: Trello is a collaboration tool that organizes your projects into boards. In one glance, Trello tells you what’s being worked on, who’s working on what, and where something is in a process. Trello is free forever till date. Might be in future you will get some new features for which you need to spend few bucks. But dont worry it free and love to see that it tries to follow Agile Development.

THE LEAN STARTUP METHOD

27 Aug

Before I start with the methods of lean start up. Lets understand what Lean exactly means:-

Lean“, is a production practice that considers the expenditure of resources for any goal other than the creation of value for the end customer to be wasteful, and thus a target for elimination. Essentially, lean is centered on preserving value with less work. Refer to Wiki

This post is for entrepreneurs and the people who hold them accountable. The five principles of the Lean Start-up, which are as follows:-

  • Entrepreneurs are everywhere: You don’t have to work in a garage to be in a start-up. The concept of entrepreneurship includes anyone who works within the definition of a start-up: A human institution designed to create new products and services under conditions of extreme uncertainty. That means entrepreneurs are everywhere and the Lean Start-up approach can work in any size company, even a very large enterprise, in any sector or industry.
  • Entrepreneurship is management: A start-up is an institution,not just a product, and so it requires a new kind of management specially geared to its context of extreme uncertainty. In fact, I believe “entrepreneur” should be considered will argue later, I believe “entrepreneur” should be considered a job title in all modern companies that depend on innovation for their future growth.
  • Validated learning: Startups exist not just to make stuff , make money, or even serve customers. They exist to learn how to build a sustainable business. This learning can be validated scientifically by running frequent experiments that allow entrepreneurs to test each element of their vision.
  • Build-Measure-Learn: The fundamental activity of a startup is to turn ideas into products, measure how customers respond, and then learn whether to pivot or persevere. All successful start-up processes should be geared to accelerate that feedback loop.
  • Innovation accounting: To improve entrepreneurial outcomes and hold innovators accountable, we need to focus on the boring stuffs : how to measure progress, how to set up milestones, and how
    to prioritize work. This requires a new kind of accounting designed for startups—and the people who hold them accountable.
