Directing a project
Keep everything in one place, and seamlessly communicate with your project board. Share status updates, reports, and meeting notes, and enable stakeholders to follow as many as many — or as few — tasks as they need to monitor progress and provide guidance.
Starting up and initiating a project
Don’t let your project mandate get lost in email. Create a task to request project approval and assign a copy to each stakeholder. Then, transform your plan into actionable tasks — without switching between apps.
Managing stage boundaries
Break your project into stages using Asana sections and assign tasks to teammates so you know who’s responsible for what by when. Then, use status updates to communicate progress, learnings, and next steps with the Project Board.
Controlling a stage
Project Managers: tired of pestering team members about tasks? With Asana, there’s no need. View all completed and incomplete tasks at a glance, identify blockers, and easily take any corrective action.
Managing product delivery
Don’t let details fall through the cracks. Use custom fields to include time estimates for every task or stage, comments to give feedback alongside work, or subtasks to work in review tasks for every milestone.
Closing a project, repeat
Ready to start closing out your project? Create tasks for each step, report out on evaluations, learnings, and transfer over any follow-up actions to your operational team. Then, save your project as a custom template to use again so you don’t lose your best learnings and processes.
We decided to give Asana a try. We were quickly able to eliminate the drudgery of sending update emails and reporting on progress in weekly meetings. Now, if I want to know what’s going on with a project or what the status of anything is, I just look at Asana and everything is instantly clear. Asana makes our process so much more efficient. It removes all the waste in communication.
