Organisational Skills, Schedules & Planning

Shortly after starting our project, we created a Trello page which is a useful organisation tool run straight from any browser. Due to the fact that it was easy to use, I quickly set up three categories with each of our roles within the team, along with the necessary subcategories which we will all be working on over the project. We set up our own columns and consulted each other to solidify our plans before starting to work on our project in chronological order as displayed on our Trello page.

Within each of the subcategories, you can add a checklist and let other people know what you have been working on and whether you have completed them or not which we utilized across our Trello page.

When we first started working on our project, we got off to a somewhat difficult start as we weren’t certain about the direction we wanted to take our company. Therefore this is the reason we took our time beginning our project and didn’t set any deadlines or schedules until we were confident in our decision. Once we had fully defined our project, instead of having set deadlines for each of our tasks, we instead worked in chronological order down our list, making sure we communicated what we needed from each other before doing our own tasks. Whilst this gave us more freedom with our tasks, it slowed down the production of our project as we all had other modules to work on. Looking back on this, we should’ve had some sort of deadline for our tasks, even if they were smaller tasks each week so we had some consistent work towards our project. The Trello page however was a good choice as it was so easy to see what had been completed
