Project management with tools even remotely in the digital world

In the current situation, remote project management is the way to go now. All we can do in office we can do remotely too. This is something the digital world makes possible. 


Project management is something we all need to take seriously even if our teams are in various locations or even working from home. Even Google uses Basecamp, a tool we have mentioned below to remain on track.
In the current scenario, one can achieve great project management even with a work from home scenario.

More than ever before, we need to manage projects well, as the image below shows us.

This is applicable for all, small businesses, start ups and big companies. Students need to learn these tools to be productive in whichever organisation they may join.

The main issues everyone has are
a. Tracking progress
In any project, progress at every stage is important and if there is a delay, one needs to explore why.
b. Meeting deadlines
Deadlines are extremely important so we need to ensure these are met no matter where the client and the team member is.
c. Assigning tasks to relevant people
Even in a situation where people are not physically together, we need to give what is suitable to the right person by assessing their skills.
d. Monitoring
At every stage, one needs to keep following all that was stated in the plan and doing all that needed to be done.
e.  Changing schedules and teams when necessary
All these are important always in all projects but in the digital world, it can be done remotely also. Remote project management apps make it possible.

They help us collaborate and manage our team effectively remotely. The following are some of the best ones that we can use. 

In team and project management, Asana is one of the best tools. It is great to make sure that our team members stay organized. It also makes us remain completely on top of the curve. It makes it possible for us to set priorities and deadlines, and even comment on individual tasks.
It allows us to change the task visuals according to your preferences. Now that's a nifty feature if there ever was one.

With clients like Uber and Sony who are very happy with them, they are surely on the right track.
Ryver is a  team collaboration tool that allows us to easily manage teams, assign tasks and track progress.
Using this, one can also create and collaborate with multiple teams. What's more, the app even enables us to set up projects, create chat threads and link out to different other tools.
This provides us with a high level of breakdown of tasks across teams. 
This is great for remote teams who work together. 
2. Best tools for project management

The following are some  tools that allow us to do great project management online. You could use them along with the ones stated above.

 3. Webinar/ video conferencing etc
This is also very prevalent and common now. There are many tools like Zoom, Skype and even FaceBook who make this easily possible in the digital world.

In Sum
