VP Volume 1: Staying Organized with Project Management Tools

VP Volume 1: Staying Organized with Project Management Tools

When you’re balancing multiple projects, clients and teams, you can find yourself bombarded with incoming everything — emails, texts, calendar reminders, “quick questions.”

Being organized is all about how you handle all those requests, conversations and questions, so you can maintain your workflow and deliver projects in a neat and orderly fashion.

With so many projects going on simultaneously, organization is key to making sure our agency is running effectively and efficiently. Among all the ways our team stays organized, the star of the show is Monday.com.

Here’s how All Points has stayed organized with systems and processes:

1. Implement a Project Management Software

A good project management tool makes planning executing and monitoring project progress a breeze. They create a transparent record of where items stand and who is doing what and when.

Monday.com is a work operating system that powers teams to run projects and workflows with confidence. It’s a simple but intuitive work OS for teams to shape workflows, adjust to shifting needs, create transparency and connect collaboratively.

2. Create a Project Plan

The first step to being organized is getting organized. Laying the groundwork upfront is key to success. For each client campaign, our agency outlines the timeline in Monday.com, assigning roles and responsibilities to meet the objective.

3. Work Within Deadlines

Set due dates not only for overarching goals but individual deadlines. Each deadline holds you and your team accountable for the work you’re doing every day. It guides your daily to-dos and gives a clear picture of what is needed and when.

Did you catch Monday.com’s feature at the Super Bowl? Our team was pretty starstruck:

The All Points Team Discusses Work from Home Best Practices During March Seminar

The All Points Team Discusses Work from Home Best Practices During March Seminar

It’s now more important than ever to be connected, especially during times of uncertainty. In light of recent developments, the All Points team grouped up for our March seminar earlier in the month before departing the office to work from home.

Led by COO and Executive Vice President Lauren Izaks and Senior Director Bailey Hewitt, the March seminar focused deeply on best work-from-home practices. It’s essential that we leverage the tools and systems we have in place to stay productive and connected. This seminar served as a great opportunity to implement our new collaborative workflow tool, Monday.com, for work-from-home purposes. We explored all the ways in which we can work together, organize our tasks and create consistency across the board by using the comments section, “My Week” function, email alerts, status labels and more.

As a tight-knit office, we understand the significance of communication, especially when it comes to the support of our clients and staying strong as a team. By aligning on best practices, our team members are better equipped to approach each day with a solid plan.

Here are a few tips we encourage those working from home to keep in mind:

  • Get ready as if you were leaving for work (take a shower, get dressed, etc.)
  • Create a dedicated workspace
  • Maintain regular working hours and mealtimes
  • Limit household distractions (electronics, roommates, family members, etc.)
  • Stretch, stand and stay active – consider at-home workouts and fitness apps

The health and safety of our team members, families, clients and communities is of utmost importance. Maintaining social distance during this time allows us to keep ourselves and others healthy, and continue to provide effective integrated public relations support to our clients.
