Asana is software that helps teams coordinate and manage their work. It helps teams of all sizes work more efficiently by making sure everyone knows the team’s plan, process, and responsibilities. Organizations use Asana to manage everything from marketing campaigns and product launches to work requests and team goals.
Asana places itself as a tool that can help replace the slew of emails, spreadsheets and sticky notes on your desk with a far more all encompassing solution with everything you need in the one place. It is flexible to work in a way that is most effective for you; whether it be in a kanban-style board, checklist or a Gantt chart. Asana can be used to keep check on day to day tasks as well as monitor the overall goals and progress of the project as a whole.
The main features
- to create a comprehensive list of tasks
- share details on actions that are required
- set deadlines for the whole project
This allows everybody to have goals assigned to them and allows the team to work in one common direction. Planning out a project in this manner allows potential risks and bottlenecks to be spotted early on and ensure the project flows as effectively as possible — even if the project was to change half way through.
