"Which Tool Should I Use?"
The two most common questions we hear in Versatile's project management training in Seattle, online, and onsite are:
"Did you tell my boss all this?"
"Which software tool should I use?"
We'll talk about your boss another time. At Versatile, we like Microsoft Project, because it is full-featured, designed according to project management best practices and is widely available. But there are other options.
Take a look at the resources at www.project-management.com to see what tools they have found.
What About Remote Team Members?
How do remote teams change the equation? If you have attended Versatile's project management training online, then you've experienced some best practices already.
- Set ground rules for participation. This covers everything from starting and stopping times to when to communicate.
- Invest in collaboration technology such as www.GoToMeeting.com or www.WebEx.com.
This conversation on LinkedIn has some great suggestions for specific habits of remote Agile teams.
