Creating an intentional community, ecovillage or even just organizing around the home often takes lists, tasks and people working together. Online project management software can organize many different components and bring a geographically separated team together. It can help make the creative process a lot easier. Creating a vision statement, a mission statement, crafting goals and making sure things are done helps the process of managing an ecovillage project go a lot smoother.
Trello is an online project management solution that I have used in the past. I used it for managing my interview with Nicole of the Manitoba Earthship. I find it easy to use, and being cross platform, it works on my laptop, my wife’s Mac, a Windows 8.1 tablet, an android and an iOS phone. I have also used it in team environments, and it performs superbly when managing large projects too.
The Trello website describes it as this:
Drag and drop cards between lists to show progress. Add as many people as you need and drag them to cards. Add and reorder lists as you need. Trello adapts to your project, team, and workflow.
You’ll see everything about your project just by glancing at the board, and it all updates in real-time. There’s nothing to set up and everyone gets it instantly.
Trello is simple on the surface, but cards have everything you need to get stuff done. Post comments for instant feedback. Upload files from your computer, Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, and OneDrive. Add checklists, labels, due dates, and more. Notifications make sure you always know when important stuff happens.
