How would I project manage a creative team if it wasn’t a university project?
Throughout the C-Tex project I have used Facebook and meetings within the library to communicate to the students. For example, I used the group feature and chat feature to communicate to the team as a whole and personally (see references for previous blog posts).
“Trello is a collaboration tool that organises your projects into boards. In one glance, Trello tells you what’s being worked on, who’s working on what, and where something is in a process” (trello.com).
If I was assigned the Project Manager role within a future project, I would definitely consider using Trello to organise a team and a project. I have had feedback from my tutor about using Facebook and he agreed that it was perfectly fine within a university project, but for future references it is important for me to be aware of what programmes/websites are out there to keep organised as a project manager.
I have set up a Trello account to use in the future to ensure organisation:
