Project Management Innovation - Instagantt

LEARN | TWELVE, DECEMBER 2018 

At Delegate Solutions we work with entrepreneurs from a wide variety of backgrounds and pride ourselves on being thoughtful and innovative problem solvers that can find a solution to most obstacles and can customize our strategy to suit our clients.

I was recently working with a client that has used Asana for many years but abandons the project management tool at times of high stress. As we worked to identify what obstacles kept him from implementing projects in Asana to completion, we identified that he is a visual learner and needed a tool that would provide a visual map of the workflow. I looked for a free online project management tool that could incorporate a Gantt chart view and ultimately decided to use Instagantt. Instagantt is a tool that syncs with Asana (or as a standalone) to provide a Gantt chart view for project and workload management. There are numerous benefits and it requires little effort to set up projects.

The Benefits Of A Strategic Coach Impact Filter

LEARN | TWELVE, NOVEMBER 2018 

If you’re always on the lookout for something to save you time around delegation, Strategic Coach® and Delegate Solutions may have the answer.

In our work supporting entrepreneurs, we have found Strategic Coach’s Impact Filter tool to help both you and your team understand the results you are looking for and take the burden of those tasks away from you.

First, let's talk about why The Impact Filter™ is valuable in delegation. This tool allows you to get the project out of your head and specify what you want the ideal result to be. With everything broken down and clear results in front of everyone, your team can take over, having everything they need to get started.

Doing this simple pre-work allows you to save time explaining what you want because they already know.

The Best Thing I Did For My Business This Summer!

HELLO | TWELVE, SEPTEMBER 2018

Peace out summer! I turned 40 this summer, travelled around Europe and hit some really exciting milestones in my business; so it was a pretty epic summer for me! Hope you are sliding into Fall feeling equally as energized. There was no greater feeling for me than to be able to travel, completely disconnect and know that my team had things covered in my absence back at Delegate. Taking this break PROVED that it was possible. Nothing blew up, nothing came up that they couldn't handle and they happily rose to the occasion!

4 Simple Inbox Tips To Gain An Hour (or more) Of Your Day Back!

LEARN | TWELVE, SEPTEMBER 2018 

Inbox dread. We’ve all experienced it. After a weekend away, or even a lunch break, and you dread seeing your inbox filled again. Researchers at Carleton University recently reported business professionals now spend one third of their time at the office, and HALF of the time they work at home in their inbox. 30% of the time the emails were not important or urgent. That’s 11.7 hours spent at work and 5.3 hours at home — every week. I don’t know about you but I would gladly spend those 17 hours NOT in my inbox. Not only is it a drain on time it’s a drain on energy.

Utilize Asana and the Bottleneck Diagnostic to Increase Productivity

LOVE | TWELVE, AUGUST 2018

 

Asana Timeline Dependencies:Asana has added a helpful new feature – timeline dependencies. When you’re planning a new marketing campaign, product launch, or other cross-functional project, the sequence of work is just as important as the work itself.

With Timeline in Asana, you can map out your project plan to see how all the work fits together. And with recent improvements to Timeline, you can now draw dependencies between tasks. As you spot timing conflicts, you can adjust dates right on Timeline so you feel confident in your project schedule. Then as work gets underway, teammates will know when dependent work is completed so they can start their tasks.
