A method you can actually use in your projects!
Many project managers aim for sophisticated systems. In reality, they can’t get it to work and give up. They end up managing their projects intuitively, which is expensive, unproductive, and risky.
Using a simple, minimalist system is a good idea for most projects. A normal person without superpowers can implement and use it, and the rest of the team and the external stakeholders can also understand and work with it. P3.express is such a system: a minimalist project management system that is easy to learn, easy to use, and easy to teach. It’s also non-proprietary and free.
We’ll have a quick look at P3.express in this session, which will give you a complete, yet high-level image of how it works. Following that, I’ll introduce the various resources you can use to learn more about it, which are all free. By investing a day or two of your time, you’ll be ready to have a complete, effective management system for your projects.
