I’ve used project and task management tools of many different flavors and religions over the years. PHBs (that’s a Dilbert reference for you youngsters) love Gantt charts. DoD loved their EVMS tools in the 90s. Agile, scrum, and kanban are all the rage right now and provide alot of great benefits when used along with the appropriate dose of pragmatism.
“Organize Anything, together” is the slogan over at trello.com and I must say that I am hooked on it.
