What is a project?

A project is temporary in that it has a defined beginning and end in time, and therefore defined scope and resources.

The development of your website is a project.  Ensure tasks designed to accomplish a singular goal.  So a project team often includes people who don’t usually work together – sometimes from different organizations and across multiple geographies.

Why a Professional Project Management (PMP) for your website project?

First of all, you want your WordPress website project  started and organized.   How did this website effort get so off target?  As a result,  you will not be satisfied with the results.   In addition, focus on what is most important on the critical path to completion.    Know who is is doing  what.   Are they making progress with the work?

    Project management processes:

  • Initiating Request for Proposal
  • Planning
  • Executing
  • Monitoring and Controlling
  • Closing

Project management brings a unique focus shaped by the goals, resources and schedule of each project.  There are any number of ways to run a collaborative website project. 

Email VS Trello for small projects

So while email is an useful tool,  has the thought crossed your mind that using emails to keep track of activities on open tasks and issues is confusing?   Ever wonder what happened to that email status request you made?  Did it end up ignored in a overflowing inbox?   Most of all,  you can’t track the history and progress on an issue?

My recent efforts have been to use Trello’s free boards, lists, and cards to organize and prioritize tasks and issues for your website project.  Because Trello tracks individual tasks and issues checking status is easy.   It is easy to add an assigned task.  Finally, the owner of the task provides progress updates and can automatically send an email with the latest task status.
