A Project Management Tip for Fridays

misc

Here's a quick tip for project management, and staying on top of tasks...

I am always getting tasks, bugs, or change requests via email, IM, or phone. Sometimes I don't always write them down because they are small enough to keep in my head, sometimes I don't write them down because I was working on something else when I received it.

If it gets to be Friday afternoon and these tasks are still in your head, in an email, or scribbled down somewhere, write them all down in one place (be it your project management software, or simply in one file, or on one sheet of paper).

It typically only takes a few minutes, and you will be glad you did on Monday!

Dave, Firms usually hire a project manager to monitor daily tasks. As technology dependency have grown exponentially in the recent years, they have resorted to web-based applications to manage their tasks and projects efficiently. I personally use CommuniClique to help coordinate my projects in a efficient manner.
