Getting a bit tangled…

by ts8richardson

I’ve felt a bit tangled this week…

I feel like I’ve needed to do a bit of back pedalling when it comes to deliverables vs documentation vs phases to try and make the project management clearer and more precise.

The feedback given this week was to work backwards from delivery date and have a proper project plan. I thought I had a project plan, but it’s starting to get a little confusing. The deliverable items in Podio have really been items for documentation, not deliverables as such. But the tool has really been trying to serve both purposes: manage the tasks the team has to do and manage the documentation the team has to do. It’s now not doing a very good job of either. This has meant I’ve needed to do some refining of the tool to make it easier for the team to track their tasks and to map out dependencies.
