At Project Avatar we want you to get the same experience like mine. That's the reason we launched Project Avatar's Challenge (PAC) yesterday. It's an opportunity to lead and work in a team consists of people with different background from different countries, and to create a product as per the project's objective. And we will use a simple collaboration tool called Basecamp.
Project Management is all about communication. With Basecamp you can get all relevant information in the project such as to-do list, project communication messages, event and milestone in the calendar, writeboard to create and edit document together, and repository for all project documents.
Every project member can get involved in the discussion. Any suggestion and comments must be documented. In fact, Basecamp allow everyone to put comment on everything (in Message, To-do list, Calendar and Writeboard)
Good ideas must be converted into action items. To-do list is the best way to break down the tasks in the project and assign responsibility.
Writeboard is the place to create documentation in the project. Any project member can create new or edit the existing document and save it as new document.
When there is change into the document, Basecamp will track it and we can compare the current and previous versions.
In the project we have to document everything. Reference is good, but it must be relevant. Any references or files related to the project can be uploaded to Basecamp.
Follow up is the key of successful project. That's why Basecamp calendar can show the event and milestone the team member need to achieve. There is email notification as well as RSS feed for the project.
So what are you waiting for? Turn your idea into project today!
