Trello: an organisational tool

What is Trello? Well, I’ve asked myself that same question. It’s a tool to have better overview of the workings and activities  that your team has to do. It’s a very handy tool to have and has a changeable structure that can be changed by own discretion. Here is an example of how it looks:

How it works

Here you see the structure of this Tool. It is been divided up into different categories. Here you can post the things that needs to get done, how it should get done, what sub activities need to get done to finish the activity as a whole. Backlog are all the activities that will be worked on in the whole scheme of project or period. The backlog an be assigned to someone but it kan also so that the activities have not been yet assigned to anyone and mostly this means that the activities placed in these columns are not yet urgent enough to take them into account for the coming period.

The organisation of the activities in this tool are pretty straight forward. It’s based on drag and drop. So if there are activities that need to be worked on this week then you can drag these activities in the column of this week and the same goes for the activities that have to be done that same day(this WEEK). The things that are done you can drag to the column DONE.

Conclusion

This Tool has made the workflow of our team already way more streamlined than the months before we began to use it. Especially when you look at the amount of activities you can cocreate in this sense. Everybody has a good overview of what needs to get done, how to get it done, who is responsible and who can help with the activities.

Although it still difficult to totally switch to this way of working it already left it’s advantages in productivity and the overview of the things that need to get done.
