LDS Tech Project Management and Collaboration Tools

Postby cperona » Fri Nov 04, 2011 9:28 am

Are we using any specific project management collaboration tools for these projects?

If there is no adopted methodology I might recommend a couple that work in most environments. Some that we have used in business, that are very very simple and yet effective have been; CoHuman and MavenLink -- both free versions I have used effectively on various projects requiring collaboration and simple PM.

Welcome to the forum, and thanks for the links. As you know, many of us are users of technology like yourself, and not programmers for the church, so we won't know the internally workings....

These are very useful tools.

I could also add this time management tool. I see it is being used in different areas as a productivity app. It could also come in handy along with those other tools you mentioned.

Maybe eventually we could consider using them in the system.

Most projects here use JIRA for issue tracking. It has a plugin called GreenHopper that enables Agile type management of issues. We can report "story points" on issues to reflect how much work we think each issue will take as compared to others, and then sort these to get a view of how much we think we can tackle in each release.

If you have not tried these tools out, please do!

If you would like to get a feel for JIRA/RockHopper on a fake project, feel free to try things out on our development environment using fake ldsaccount logins.
