Why the Biggest “Myths” About standard directory of proof marks’ May Actually Be Right
This is one of the most common reasons people create their own directories for their projects.
Creating a directory is one of the most important activities that a project manager can undertake. As I mentioned in an earlier post, the most important thing a project manager can do is write a project’s plan, and this is one of the most important pieces of the plan because it is the single most important thing for people to understand.
People don’t realize how important creating a directory is until they are actually creating their own. Unfortunately, the way people create directories is really just a bunch of boilerplate.
The project management field calls this a “Project Plan”. This is exactly what it sounds like. A project plan is a document that describes the tasks that a project will take on, the resources that will be used, and the activities that will be performed. I think we all probably need a project management tool (or two) and that is the reason we have project plans.
The problem is that many people don’t actually do a lot of planning. They just sit down and add the project into a file. It’s really hard to go through and actually create your own project management system.
We actually do have a project management tool called Project Management for Dummies which we use to organize our tasks and responsibilities. The tool allows us to create a project plan and give the team a road map to how things will work. The tool even allows us to assign tasks and responsibilities within the project. It really is a great help. It also is an excellent place to get ideas and check how the team is doing.
We should probably get a project management tool for every team. Like I said, it doesn’t really matter what we use. But as project managers, we need one like this. As project managers, we need to have a system that allows us to assign tasks to the people on the team and also to create sub-projects. The goal of Project Management for Dummies is to make it easy to create a project plan, track tasks, and so forth. It is a great tool to have.
There are a whole lot of tools that can help us track and set up our projects, but you can’t have everything a project management tool. For example, the project management tool we like to use is called Todoist, and it’s a terrific tool. What makes it great is that it has a lot of great features. It is customizable, so you can use it to create a project plan from scratch or to set up a bunch of sub-projects.
Todoist offers a lot of neat features, but they all come with a bit of a learning curve. I would recommend using a spreadsheet program instead of a project management tool. You will spend quite a bit of time in the beginning learning how to use Todoist, that way you will be better prepared for the actual project management aspect of Todoist.
