Workflow management software for teams

So your team always knows who's doing what by when.

What is workflow management?

A workflow is the process of how you get stuff done. It’s a system that makes work more efficient while keeping everyone on the same page. Workflow management is all about building and tracking these processes. Asana is like a home base for all your workflows: use it as a tool to create workflows and track your team’s work.

Tips for establishing great workflow management

1. Decide how and when to communicate

To make sure everyone’s on the same page, set communication guidelines in advance, make the higher-level mission known to everyone, and encourage feedback.

2. Streamline the things you do regularly

Think about all the places where you can save time on recurring work. Is there a way to automate any of your tasks?

3. Have an internal knowledge base

Make it easy for collaborators to access information and projects by creating a central database of resources.

4. Define responsibilities and expectations at the start

Be sure to answer these questions for any workflow: What are the exact deliverables? Who’s responsible for each piece of work? When is each task due?

5. Keep your workflow simple and make adjustments

Avoid creating an overly complicated workflow. To start, keep it simple and check in regularly to make any necessary adjustments.
