Simpler Project Management

I thought I only hated one thing: overcooked zucchini. But since launching my new online business, I’ve been managing multiple parts and humans again, and I now remember I also hate project management. So I’m eager to try the simpler way as explained in this article, Project Management for High Performing Lazy People.

Like many startups, I can’t yet afford to outsource the critical role of planning, coordinating, revising, and reporting. This simple protocol is perfect for my decentralized creative team.  If your business requires perpetual project management, the enclosed spreadsheet may be oversimplified. It’s still better than no system at all, and perhaps the perfect transition before you take on a bigger tool.

What’s your favorite Project Management software or process?  I’d love to see your suggestions in the comments below.

    OK, I must admit that it’s late in the day and I need my glass of wine, but for the life of me, I cannot figure out how to get to the enclosed spreadsheet that you reference as a simple tool for project management. Sorry to be a bother, but can you talk me through this one. I’m new to blogging, so I need some hand holding.

      Great question, Judy! In this blog post, click on phrase, “Project Management For High Performing Lazy People,” which will take you to the actual article. You’ll see near the end of that article, “download a sample copy of our PML.” Click on that phrase, and the spreadsheet is all yours.
