Get Your Virtual Act Together - Online Project Management

Published on

This presentation was given at JoomlaDay North Carolina, February 23rd, 2013 by Deb Cinkus. Deb is a certified Project Manager (PMP) by the Project Management Institute and CEO of Polished Geek, a Joomla web development company located in Raleigh, NC, USA.

Whether you are a team of one, or a team of two hundred, virtual project management is a real challenge. Talk to other online businesses and ask them which project management system they use and recommend, and you'll get a multitude of answers. Basecamp, JForce, ActiveCollab, JIRA, ProjectFork - all have their fans (and haters), so how do you figure out which one will benefit YOUR business the most?

Too many business owners jump right into researching tool features, demos and price plans without taking the time to take a step back and evaluate their needs first. Using her company, Polished Geek, and real life examples, Deb will share a process that can help you uncover what the right virtual project management priorities are for your business, all while keeping your brand promise at the forefront of the decision.
