planning teamworkGot a small project or a team goal where Microsoft Project seems like overkill? Or maybe some of your team members don't have (or aren't comfortable with) MS Project.

All of us have one thing in common when it comes to our work: we do some amount of task management. While there may only be a few PM’s using Microsoft Project in any given organization, there are a gazillion (at least) managers and contributors who are regularly organizing and completing tasks.

These 2 motivating factors — task management and management of small projects — are why KnowledgeWave is so excited about Microsoft Planner.

This great new app provides an intuitive and visual way to organize your team’s work. Think of it as a light online project manangement tool that’s included with Office 365. You can use Planner to share project files, communitate as a team and organize tasks that are updated using the Planner dashboard.

Join us for a half-hour LIVE webinar for an intro to Planner: this great new and free tool that is now part of Office 365.

This webinar took place in the past but the good news is that we recorded it!
