In this masterclass Leanne covers:

  • Project Management Tools
  • Communication Tools
  • Time Trackers
  • Best Practice

Trello

Very visual and conceptual – with lots of apps and integrations to add on functionality. However, added integrations can make things complicated and expensive.

Asana

Leanne’s favourite tool! It’s analytical and has solid reporting, along with workload and timelines. It also has multiple views, even on the free version and great permission controls. On the downside, it only has batches of 5 and struggles with an organisation-wide view.

Monday.com

No free version, only paid. Can get quite expensive, to access more activities and the more advanced features.

ClickUp

Easy to use, but tends to be a copy of the more established tools. Limited storage and limited views.

Leanne says – if you’re working alone, project management software may be enough. If your sub-contracting, go for communication tools too.

Stick with the free versions to establish your business requirements before investing in any paid versions.

Communication Tools:

  • Slack
  • Google Hangouts
  • WhatsApp
  • Microsoft Teams

Time Tracking Tools:

  • Clockify
  • Harvest
  • Toggl

Regardless of the tools you choose, you need to know how to use it, to get the most benefit.

Leanne recommends the following best practice when trialing a tool:

  • Play
  • Plan
  • Practice
  • Persist
