The Ten Laws of Legal Project Management

Over the next few articles, I’ll introduce the Ten Laws of (Legal) Project Management and then go into some of them in practical, how-do-I-apply-this detail. Why ten? It feels like about the right number, a manageable number that sums up basic project management maxims and guidelines.

They set goals, used Gantt ...

A New Approach to Feature Requests

A few months ago, I got this email from a customer:It would be wonderful if there was a way to tag/assign forwarded emails to specific task lists within client projects. The “email forwards” section is really cumbersome on large scope client projects where we have lots of balls in the air at once.It’s pretty straightforward. Our app doesn’t have this feature and they would like it to be added. It’s a feature request. Our support team sees a dozen or so feature requests every day.Deciding how to ...

How many customers do you need?

By now, it’s occurred to you that the holidays are not coming back, it isn’t getting warmer any time soon and you’d better get at it. It’s about this time every year that businesses really get serious about attracting and winning new customers. What happens next is as predictable as the gyms being packed in January. Businesses put together these elaborate, grandiose plans that come with Gantt charts, calendars, and color-coding. But even with all that planning, two key questions are rarely aske...

Turning a bar chart into a Gantt diagram

Project Gantt charts are a pain to create in PowerPoint. Screen dumps from professional project management software are too detailed and don't have the right look & feel. Manually resizing blocks is tedious, and oh boy, what if you have to add or change an activity...I often use a disguised stacked bar chart to create project flow charts in PowerPoint. First, you need to look at the content. Like my approach with all data charts, project plans should not be copy pasted directly into PowerPoint. ...

3 Reasons Why Marketers Need Project Management Tools

Marketers live and die by their automation solutions. Without them, everything is done manually, doesn’t scale, takes too much time, and ultimately descends into chaos. It would seem marketers don’t need any other tools. However, marketers often work with other teams across the organization like developers, product management, and even the accounting folks. And in that work, there’s a lot of time and energy spent passing information back and forth between those teams, who are, you guessed it, us...

Visual Tools To Boost Your Productivity At Work

Did you know that you can only be productive for about 3 hours in an 8-hour work day? One good reason is the limited concentration of humans. Aside from that, there are other factors that can eat up your time at work. Just think about meetings, lunch breaks and having small chats with your co-workers. If you aren’t careful, those 3 hours of productivity can easily go down the drain.

Entrepreneurs Don't Plan To Fail, They Fail To Plan

I periodically read research reports about business failures. I always find them interesting, although often they are depressing.Such as what I recently read. Which was research from Bradley University in Peoria, IL.  This research found that 70% to 80% of new businesses fail within their first year. And while this was frustrating enough to read, the research further stated that half of those companies which do survive the first year will fail within the next four years.Now, let's turn to the ca...

Todo List Apps for People Who Don’t Like Todo Lists

To-do list and task manager apps can be great as a second brain. They act as a repository for all of the things that we need to do but struggle to remember. These days they enable you to bring all of the things to be done everywhere you go and on whatever platform you are using, whether that be a mobile phone, tablet or PC. However, when you dump all of your tasks, appointments, and random thoughts into a to-do list app, the resultant wall of text can be hard to digest. Some app developers recog...
