Task Management – The Key to Productive Teams

Task Management - The key to Productive Teams

The most successful people aren’t superheroes. They have the same 24 hours in their day like us. But they find significant ways to “do” more in fewer hours. How do they do it?

When I was juggling for the solution, I found task management techniques to stay on top.

Task Management is more than planning, assigning, and tracking.

It is more about having the right people work on the right tasks in a time-boxed manner and bring them to their logical conclusion.

A robust task management process helps individuals and groups to collaborate and share information to achieve their collective goals.

Take the chaos out of teamwork and get more done!

Effective task management requires managing all the aspects of a task which includes time, priority, status, type, dependency, notifications, and so on.

Steps to create and assign tasks

  • Log in to your Orangescrum account
  • Create a project by entering a suitable project name, a short name for the project (mandatory), invite members to whom you want to assign tasks by entering their mail ids (separated by a comma), start date and end date, estimated hour(s) of the project in the respective fields.
  • You can always invite more users to your project as and when there is a need.
  • Create tasks for the project with a timeline, estimated hour(s) and assign to the right team member to work on the task.
  • Set the priority whether it is high/medium/low. So that your team member can see the task details and will start work on the basis of the task priority.
  • You can also create subtasks under them

N.B: In Orangescrum, entering the start date, end date and estimated hour(s) is vital as these factors define how much effort your team is putting towards the project, and whether or not they are completing their tasks on time.

  • Task Priority

Set the right priority for each task. It allows the team members to be on the same page as far as the task importance is concerned.

Task priority can help both the project manager and team members to identify what to do first and what next. Hence you can complete the project before the deadline.

  • Create tasks for the project with a timeline, estimated hour(s) and assign to the right team member to work on the task.
  • Set the priority whether it is high/medium/low. So that your team member can see the task details and will start work on the basis of the task priority.

So this is the way you can create, assign, and complete tasks before the project deadline. It minimizes risks and increases business productivity.
