Do you feel you need to manage your team’s tasks more effectively? Do you get the impression that there are a lot of ideas and discussions, but no tangible results that can be delivered to customers? It is often the case that employees are literally drowning in emails and it is difficult to focus on priorities because there are so many distractions. On top of this, there is the problem of a lack of control over what is most important and who is working on what right now. Trello is useful for dynamic and creative teams that are goal-oriented.
The training shows how to use the simple and popular Trello tool to manage projects and tasks in projects. Participants learn the key rules of the Kanban board-based workflow technique and then create their own boards in the Trello application through exercises. Each subsequent exercise demonstrates how to use it in a team setting.

Project Team Advisor
Twenty years ago I started with a small start-up but was quickly drawn into Fortune500 giants such as Hewlett-Packard and Mondelez International.
The key to gaining experience was diversity: from help-desk system implementation projects, to leading organisational change, creating animated films for children and transforming a shared service centre for a bank. Every project problem I had to solve cost me one hair off my head.
I have discovered that the best project teams have four powers: vision, people, tools and results. I help clients develop these powers by providing original training and project consultancy.
