The Question

How do you stay productive without project management? This is a question I ask myself every morning when I get out of bed and should be on your list of important questions too! But sadly, it’s hard. Staying on track and making sure everything is being accounted for are two of the most important tasks any business owner faces on a daily basis. So, from here, what are your options? Wouldn’t it be great if there was some sort of project management miracle that could take all of this pain away? Well for Dustin Moskovitz and Justin Rosenstein, former Facebook co-founders, the answer came quite handily.

Moskovitz and Rosenstein are the creators of Asana: the revolutionary project-management software that does more than handle all of your business’ tasks and projects online.

Keep the wheels turning

Asana is dedicated to helping you keep your business’ metaphorical wheels turning. It is a web based software-as-a-service designed to improve team collaboration. The main user focus is to plan and manage projects and tasks online without the use of email providing each team a workspace. The idea is that workspaces contain projects, and projects contain tasks. In each task, users can add notes, comments, attachments, and tags. Users can follow projects, tasks, and followers get updates when the state of a project or task changes. All of this information goes straight to the user’s inbox.

Large corporations valued this software so much that in May of 2013, Asana launched “Organizations,” which lets businesses use Asana on a company-wide scale.

Flexibility is Asana’s middle name. Well, not actually. But Asana was built around flexibility, allowing each subtask to be grouped into larger projects and even allowing users to assign different tasks to other teams or departments, which makes life so much easier!

Asana takes project management to a whole new level on the business field and the software’s possibilities are endless. So stop trying to remember all of the things you’re supposed to do and let Asana help structure your life!
