New to project management? 5 more things you should know

Referred URL - http://www.pm4girls.elizabeth-harrin.com/2014/04/new-to-project-management-5-more-things-you-should-know/

poster 5 more things

Last month I wrote about 5 things you should know as a new project manager. There’s actually more than 5 that newbie project managers should be paying attention to, so here are another 5!

1. Know what’s a showstopper
What is going to kill your project? Some problems aren’t that big a deal. But some are huge and will cause significant issues. Knowing which is which is partly down to your professional judgement, and if you are new to projects you might doubt your own ability to make that call. Showstoppers are things that will prevent your project from achieving its objectives. If you hit a problem and you don’t know how serious it really is, talk to your project sponsor or a trusted colleague. Chances are, if you are worried, then they will be too.

2. Manage risk
Risks are things that could potentially cause problems (there are also risks that could potentially improve things, but that’s for another day). They haven’t yet, but they might. Don’t ignore them. The project manager’s role is to work out how to make these risks disappear or at least have less of an impact if they do happen.
Each project risk will need a management strategy and an action plan. Work with your team to establish what to do about them. You might not take any action for some smaller risks but for those that have the potential to give you a big headache you’ll want to look at creative solutions to make them go away.

What documents should your project have?
Project Initiation Document
Project Plan
Risk log
Issue log
Change log
Project Closure Document
There are plenty of others but these are the minimum.
 
3. Learn to cope when things go wrong
When problems do hit (and they will!), the best project managers deal with them calmly and professionally. If that isn’t your nature, you’ll have to work hard to give the impression of having everything under control. You set the tone for the team and they will take their lead from you. However disastrous the problem, don’t run around like a headless chicken screaming, “The sky is falling!” Sit down with some subject matter experts and come up with some solutions to the problem so you can present your project sponsor with a recommendation of how to deal with it.

4. Understand the benefits
What benefits will this project deliver? Every project task you do should contribute to achieving those. These days, companies don’t have the budget or resources to invest in projects that don’t deliver anything useful. And as business priorities change at a scary rate, today’s high profile, top priority project is tomorrow’s pointless exercise. Make sure you understand your project’s benefits and keep checking that they will be achieved and that the project does still align with current business strategy. If it doesn’t, it’s probably time for your project to be stopped and for you to work on something more worthwhile.

5. No one will understand your job
Finally, accept the fact that people outside of project management won’t understand what you do. If the project goes well, they’ll ask why they needed a project manager at all. If the project goes badly, be prepared for it to be all your fault. I have always found it hard to explain the role of a project manager. My job is to make it easy for other people to do their jobs, and if that doesn’t sound like a non-job then I don’t know what does.

If you can get a mentor, then get one. If you can’t, read everything you can, research good practices online, attend training and take some certificates. In fact, do all that even if you do have a mentor. You should never stop learning and developing professionally, even when you’ve got lots of experience and people are asking you to mentor them. Project management is basically about building good relationships with other people to get things done, and as every project and every person is different, there is always going to be something you can learn and take forward to your next piece of work.

5 Strategies for Building New Productivity Habits in Your Project Team by Andrew Filev

Referred URL - http://www.pm4girls.elizabeth-harrin.com/2014/04/5-strategies-for-building-new-productivity-habits-in-your-project-team/

This is a guest post by Andrew Filev is the founder and CEO of Wrike.

Andrew Filev
Andrew Filev

Various studies show that we spend about 45% of our time every day on habitual actions. People all have different work styles, but, as my experience shows, an important soft skill for a project manager is to help his employees develop the optimal mix of productivity habits.
Your team’s productivity habits are the magic ingredients to your project’s success. If you have the right recipe, your team will complete the project on time and collaborate in a hassle-free way. On the contrary, if the ingredients aren’t right, there could be procrastination, unproductive meetings and other problems.

Why the reluctance to change? 

The reluctance to nurture productive habits can’t be blamed on a bad temper or a conservative mind. Rather, the issue lies deep in human physiology. No matter how simple a habit is, our brains need to do a lot of rewiring, and even though we may not notice it, this involves physical change.
No wonder making a habit stick takes 66 days on average, according to research. Classic psychology also supports the point: denial is a natural first reaction to change. So, in order to create a productive habit, the main goal is to get past denial as quickly as possible, moving to acceptance and new confidence.

How to smoothly introduce new habits

Let’s look at some practical strategies for bringing new habits into your team’s culture and making these habits sustainable:
1. Lead by example
To plant a new productivity habit, define what behavior you want and then practice what you preach. Your team will immediately see it in action. In such a credible manner, you communicate the outcome as you keep leading by example.
Author and speaker Scott Berkun gave this really good description: “I think leadership comes from integrity – that you do whatever you ask others to do. I think there are nonobvious ways to lead. Just by providing a good example makes it possible for other people to see better ways to do things.”
2. Share the power to change (“peer pressure”)
Your own example is an essential starter, but it’s insufficient on its own. Additional support from a group of pioneers might be extremely helpful. Some of your employees might be more productivity-oriented than others. The tactic that I suggest is to form a core team from those most open to change, build the right productivity habits among them and empower them to influence others.
3. Apply horizontal or vertical rollout
You can move forward with the adoption of a new productivity habit in one of two ways: The first is to begin with a part of the team and then gradually roll it out to the rest of the employees. This would be a horizontal approach. The second is a vertical rollout, where the idea is to split the new method into parts and make them stick one after another. For example, it could be helpful in forming a culture of sharing, which is critical for smooth project collaboration.
4. Motivate
Changing habits involves both our rational and emotional sides. To influence the emotional, you should give your team extra incentive to repeat the new methods more frequently, integrating these into their work styles. Being a leader, you need to provide feedback, answer any questions promptly and go through the change together with your team. A bit of competition can make the habit introduction more natural and fun.  Introduce some sort of gamification. Get creative with prizes.
5. Blend new work styles into existing practices
If an old habit in the team is useful, don’t break it. What’s more, you can leverage it in adopting the new habits. To quicken the adoption of productivity methods, you could blend new and old practices that exist in your team. This would make the new feel more familiar, ensuring a more natural transition.
To wrap up, let me quote motivational speaker Brian Tracy: “Successful people are simply those with successful habits.”
The task of a project manager is to guide his or her team to its greatest potential, so that team members collaborate effortlessly and achieve great results together. As both experience and neuroscience research shows us, behavioral change isn’t easy. It’s just how human brains are wired. So, if you want to introduce new methods to your team, prepare well and actively participate from the very beginning.

Top 15 Words to Include On Your Resume by Alison DoyleApril

Referred URL - http://jobsearch.about.com/b/2014/04/15/top-15-wordsto-include-on-your-resume.htm

It can be a challenge to know what to include on your resume. There are some terms that will get your resume noticed and others than can knock it out of contention.
Choosing the right terms can help you make the best impression, and CareerBuilder has released a new survey that reports on what employers want to see on resumes - and what they don't.
Here are the 15 best words to include on your resume:
  1. Achieved: 52%
  2. Improved: 48%
  3. Trained/Mentored: 47%
  4. Managed: 44%
  5. Created: 43%
  6. Resolved: 40%
  7. Volunteered: 35%
  8. Influenced: 29%
  9. Increased/Decreased: 28%
  10. Ideas: 27%
  11. Negotiated: 25%
  12. Launched: 24%
  13. Revenue/Profits: 23%
  14. Under budget: 16%
  15. Won: 13%
What shouldn't you include on your resume? Here are the 15 worst terms to use when resume writing, according to employers who responded to the survey, starting with "best of breed" which sounds more like a dog show winner than a candidate for employment:
  1. Best of breed: 38%
  2. Go-getter: 27%
  3. Think outside of the box: 26%
  4. Synergy: 22%
  5. Go-to person: 22%
  6. Thought leadership: 16%
  7. Value add: 16%
  8. Results-driven: 16%
  9. Team player: 15%
  10. Bottom-line: 14%
  11. Hard worker: 13%
  12. Strategic thinker: 12%
  13. Dynamic: 12%
  14. Self-motivated: 12%
  15. Detail-oriented: 11%
You don't have much time to make that good (or bad) impression. 17% of surveyed hiring managers spend 30 seconds or less, on average, reviewing resumes. 68% spend less than two minutes. By focusing on the skills, results and accomplishments that are the most related to the job for which you're applying you'll be able to get your resume a closer look. Even an extra minute or so can help.

6 Proven Ways to Deal with a Bad Boss by Rick Conlow

Referred URL - http://www.linkedin.com/today/post/article/20140414031208-64275548-6-proven-ways-to-deal-with-a-bad-boss?trk=tod-home-art-list-small_2



Horrible bosses aren't just in the movies. How many times have you heard someone complain about a bad boss? Almost everyone has worked with one at some time in their careers. Type in "bad boss" on Google and you get 356 million hits. It's an awful situation to be in, if you have one.
Not surprisingly, bad boss behavior is really harmful. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health says 77% of employees receive significant stress symptoms from a bad boss. Research published in the Journal of Business and Psychology shows that negative leadership behavior produces lower employee morale and emotional distress.
How do you handle a bad boss? First, consider that you can't change the person. For whatever reason, your boss is unable to lead people well. Yet, the reality is that many companies keep terrible bosses if they achieve their numbers or have personal relationships with key clients or executives. Second, you can only control and change how you respond. If you need or want to keep the job, don't allow yourself to be a victim or whine about the situation. While it isn't necessarily easy to tolerate what's happening, here are six proven methods you can use to train that horrible boss and minimize your suffering.
1. Control yourself
You spend way too much time at work to let a bad boss ruin your career or family life. You start to handle a bad boss best by working on yourself first. Center yourself by doing an honest self-inventory about your strengths and areas to improve. Are you sure it isn't you that has a problem? If it's the boss, find some personal ways to let off steam: relaxation, exercise, talking with others or taking strategic timeouts. Take the high road, treat your boss with respect, learn to do a great job or at least a better job. Why does this matter? If you do your job above reproach, you lessen your bad boss's impact on your work performance, and you will feel better about yourself.
2. Clarify priorities
Ask your boss for a meeting to clarify his or her expectations. Take notes. Create a plan, with goals and action steps for your responsibilities. Then present it and ask for input. Listen and make appropriate adjustments. Why will this help? You are minimizing misunderstandings about what has to be done and why. The incompetent boss will often be delighted with your initiative, sparing them that necessity. Nearly all bosses will appreciate this approach because it saves them time and effort.
3. Communicate upward
Most bad bosses, especially the tyrants, hate surprises. Regularly let your boss know what's going on: email, meetings, casual update. One of my coaching clients had a obsessive data-driven manager who sent long emails at all hours. Other employees became overwhelmed and started complaining to one another. This caused them serious backlash from him. My client managed his boss with good follow-up on key priorities. It provided him lots of space his co-workers never received.
However, don't overdo the communication; learn the timing and process that seems to work best for your boss. By doing this you will also learn other information that will help you help your boss look good. Why is this helpful? This isn't "brown nosing" here. You are specifically checking in to keep your boss off your back and to make a tough situation better for you. A common mistake in dealing with bad bosses is avoiding or retreating from them. This just adds to your trouble.
4. Confront strategically
The book, Leadership Secrets of Attila the Hun, by Wess Roberts, provides a clue for a dealing with a horrible leader. Be principled, but don't be stupid. If you fight a bad boss on everything you most likely will lose. One manager I worked with took no gruff from anyone and had some serious arguments with his no-nonsense manager. While my friend made his points, he also lost his job when he could ill afford to do so. Pick your fights and confront positively, with key data and plans to support your point of view. Document your concerns when communicating with a bad boss, and keep a copy. How does this help? You will gain the boss's respect, you maintain your integrity, and you have a record.
5. Consult others
Discreetly talk to other people you work with. How do they experience your boss? Is it just you? What's working for them? What isn't working? How do others handle situations like yours? Do this to broaden your perspective and maybe pick up a new idea or two.
You may consider talking to your boss's boss. Research the status of their relationship. What kind of leader is this leader? Is she like your boss or is the person approachable? Bring your documentation when meeting with her and refer to it, if it seems like she is empathetic to you. Going over your manager's head can come back to haunt you. Do this thoughtfully and carefully.
6. Contact HR
Use this approach if nothing seems to get better. You have to gauge the type of Human Resource team you have. Are they compliance driven or are they employee advocates? If they are compliance driven they will often take the boss' side, which doesn't help you. And, bad bosses tend to get resentful. Most often it ends badly for employees. If they are employee advocates you may gain some helpful counsel while they investigate and keep your comments anonymous. Some organizations have employee hotlines coordinated through HR. Research it, before you use it.
You have to determine if can you live in the situation your boss creates. If you can, use these six tips to help. If you can't, you can always quit to give yourself a chance for a fresh start, but get another job first. Of course, you could wish you worked at Amazon, who recently announced they will pay unhappy employees to leave.
By the way, do you want to learn proven approaches to becoming a "good boss" and increasing employee engagement? If so, I suggest you check out this complimentary eBook: How to Motivate-No-Inspire Employees: 10 Keys to Employee Engagement.

Top 7 Most Important Soft Skills By Alison Doyle

Referred URL - http://jobsearch.about.com/b/2014/04/10/top-7-most-important-soft-skills.htm


When you're seeking employment, your soft skills (people skills) can be as important as the hard skills that are required to achieve success on the job.

Companies seek candidates with both types of skills when hiring for most positions. That's because if you can't get along with others, don't have a positive attitude, can't work well as part of a team, and aren't able to think creatively and critically it may not matter how talented you are.

Indeed.com, the leading job site, has shared the most valuable soft skills for job seekers and employees. Here are the top 7 most important soft skills to have for both interviewing and in the workplace from Indeed's Director of Recruiting, Mike Steinerd:
  • Acting as a team player means not only being cooperative, but also displaying strong leadership skills when necessary
  • Flexibility is a valuable asset - employees who can adapt to any situation are dependable no matter what's thrown at them
  • Effective communication is paramount, and includes articulating oneself well, being a good listener and using appropriate body language
  • Problem-solving skills and resourcefulness are critical when unexpected issues inevitably arise
  • Accepting feedback and applying lessons learned fosters professional growth
  • Confidence is key, but it's important to always have the knowledge and skills to support self-assurance
  • Creative thinking is invaluable and drives innovation and increased efficiency
When you're writing resumes and cover letters, it's essential to reference the skills the employer is seeking in your job application materials. The same is true when you're interviewing. Review the job posting, and be prepared to give specific examples of the skills you have (both hard and soft) that are a match for the job requirements.
Also be sure to present your soft skills to the hiring manager. Present your positive attitude and enthusiasm during job interviews. Don't just say that you have the skills the company needs. Instead, exude confidence and show your interviewers, with examples, how you have succeeded on the job. Actions can genuinely speak louder than words - especially in a competitive workplace.

வெற்றிலையின் மகத்துவம் மற்றும் நன்மைகள்..!

வெற்றிலையின் மகத்துவம் மற்றும் நன்மைகள்..!

பொதுவாக நமது இந்துமத கலாச்சார பழக்க வழக்கங்களில் அனைத்து காரியங்க ளிலும் முன்னிலை வகிக்கும் இன்றியமையாத ஒரு மங்கள பொருட்கள்தான் வெற்றிலை, பாக்கு ஆகும்.வெற்றிலையில் ஐந்து தெய்வங்கள் உறைந்துள்ளன.

வெற்றிலையின் நுனியில் மூதேவியும் 
வெற்றிலையின் காம்பில் மகாலட்சுமியும் 
வெற்றிலையின் நரம்பில் பிரம்மாவும் 
வெற்றிலையின் முன் பகுதியில் சிவனும் 
வெற்றிலையின் பின் பகுதியில் சக்தியும் 
என ஐம்பெரும் தெய்வங்கள் உறைந்துள்ளனர்.

எனவே வெற்றிலை போடும்போது நுனியையும்,காம்பையும், நரம்பையும் நீக்கி விட்டு சுண்ணாம்பு தடவி போடுதல் நன்று. 

40 - வயதிற்கு மேல் மதிய உணவிற்குப் பின் வெற்றிலை,பாக்கு சேர்தது உண்ணுதல் மிகவும் அவசியம் ஆகும்.ஏனென்றால் இந்த வயதிற்குப் பிறகு செரிமான சக்திகள் குறைய தொடங்கும்.

நாம் உண்ணும் உணவு முறையாக செரிக்கப் பட்டு சத்துக்கள் உடலில் முழுமை யாய் சேருவதற்கும், உடலின் அனைத்து எலும்புகளுக்கு தேவையான சுண்ணாம்பு [Calcium] சத்தை சமன் செய்யவும் வெற்றிலை, பாக்கு போடுதல் மிகவும் தேவை யாகும்.

வெற்றிலையில் 84.4% நீர்ச்சத்தும், 3.1% புரதச் சத்தும், 0.8% கொழுப்புச் சத்தும் நிறைந்துள்ளது. இதில் கால்சியம், கரோட்டின், தயமின், ரிபோபிளேவின் மற்றும் வைட்டமின் சி உள்ளது.கலோரி அளவு 44.

தற்போதைய ஆராய்ச்சியில், வெற்றிலையில் மிகவும் வீரியமிக்க நோய் எதிர்ப்புத் திறன் கொண்ட சவிக்கால் (Chavicol) என்னும் பொருள் இருப்பதாக கண்டறியப் பட்டுள்ளது. வெற்றிலையை மென்று சாப்பிடுவதால் மலச்சிக்கல் நீங்கும். நன்கு பசி உண்டாகும். வாய்ப்புண், வயிற்றுப் புண் நீங்கும்.

வெற்றிலைக்கு முன்னம் பெறும் பாக்கை வாயிலிட்டால்
குற்றமுறும் உறவோர் கூட்டம்போம்-வெற்றிலையை
முன்னிட்டுப் பாக்கருந்த மூதறிவோர் தம் மார்பின்
மன்னிட்டு வாழும் பூ மாது..

வெற்றிலை, பாக்கு போடும்போது முதலில் பாக்கை மட்டும் போடக் கூடாது.இது குற்றமாகும்.பாக்கை மட்டும் வாயிலிட்டு மென்று உமிழ்நீரை விழுங்கும் போது இதன் துவர்ப்பினால் கழுத்துக் குழல் சுருங்கி நெஞ்சு அடைக்கும்.மயக்கம், மூர்ச்சை அடைய ஏதுவாகும். மேலும் சொந்த பந்த உறவினர்கள் பிரிந்து விடுவர் என சாஸ்திர விதிகள் கூறுகிறது.அதனால் முதலில் வெற்றிலையை மென்று பின்பு பாக்கை வாயிலிட்டு மெல்ல மகா விஷ்ணுவின் இடது மார்பில் வாழும் பூமகள் மகாலட்சுமியின் அருள் கிட்டும்.

அடைக்காய் தின்பதில் ஊறுமுதல் நீர் நஞ்சாம் அதி பித்தம் 
இரண்டாவதூறு நீரே கடையமிர்தம் மூன்றாவதூறு நீர் தான்
கனமதுர நான்காவதூறு மந்நீர் மடையெனவே ஐந்தாறிற்
சுரந்துள் ஊறி வருநீர் களைச் சுகித்து தடையுருப் பித்தமொடு
மந்த நோயும் தளர்பாண்டு நோயும் உண்டாம் தரம் சொன்னோம்.

வெற்றிலை,பாக்கு,சுண்ணாம்பு சேர்த்து உண்ணும் போது முதலில் வாயில் ஊறும் உமிழ்நீர் நஞ்சாகும் இதனை உமிழ்ந்துவிட [துப்பி விட]வேண்டும். இரண்டாவது மெல்லும் போது ஊறும் உமிழ்நீர் அதிக பித்தமாகும். இதனையும் உமிழ்ந்து விட வேண்டும்.மூன்றாவது மெல்லும் போது வாயில் ஊறும் உமிழ்நீர் அமிர்தமாகும். இதனை மட்டும் விழுங்க வேண்டும். நான்காவது ஊறும் உமிழ்நீர் அதிக இனிப்பாக இருக்கும் இதனை விழுங்கலாம்.இதன் பிறகு ஊறும் உமிழ்நீரை விழுங்கக்கூடாது அதனால் மந்தம்,பித்தம்,பாண்டு போன்ற நோய் உண்டாகும்.

வெற்றிலைக்கு நாக இலை என்ற மற்றொரு பெயரும் உண்டு. பாம்பின் விஷத்தைக் கூட மாற்றும் தன்மை கொண்டதால் இதனை நாக இலை என்றும் அழைக்கின்றனர்.

பொதுவாக நமது இந்துமத கலாச்சார பழக்க வழக்கங்களில் அனைத்து காரியங்க ளிலும் முன்னிலை வகிக்கும் இன்றியமையாத ஒரு மங்கள பொருட்கள்தான் வெற்றிலை, பாக்கு ஆகும்.வெற்றிலையில் ஐந்து தெய்வங்கள் உறைந்துள்ளன.

வெற்றிலையின் நுனியில் மூதேவியும் ...
வெற்றிலையின் காம்பில் மகாலட்சுமியும்
வெற்றிலையின் நரம்பில் பிரம்மாவும்
வெற்றிலையின் முன் பகுதியில் சிவனும்
வெற்றிலையின் பின் பகுதியில் சக்தியும் 


 என ஐம்பெரும் தெய்வங்கள் உறைந்துள்ளனர்.
 

எனவே வெற்றிலை போடும்போது நுனியையும்,காம்பையும், நரம்பையும் நீக்கி விட்டு சுண்ணாம்பு தடவி போடுதல் நன்று.

40 - வயதிற்கு மேல் மதிய உணவிற்குப் பின் வெற்றிலை,பாக்கு சேர்தது உண்ணுதல் மிகவும் அவசியம் ஆகும்.ஏனென்றால் இந்த வயதிற்குப் பிறகு செரிமான சக்திகள் குறைய தொடங்கும்.

நாம் உண்ணும் உணவு முறையாக செரிக்கப் பட்டு சத்துக்கள் உடலில் முழுமை யாய் சேருவதற்கும், உடலின் அனைத்து எலும்புகளுக்கு தேவையான சுண்ணாம்பு [Calcium] சத்தை சமன் செய்யவும் வெற்றிலை, பாக்கு போடுதல் மிகவும் தேவை யாகும்.

வெற்றிலையில் 84.4% நீர்ச்சத்தும், 3.1% புரதச் சத்தும், 0.8% கொழுப்புச் சத்தும் நிறைந்துள்ளது. இதில் கால்சியம், கரோட்டின், தயமின், ரிபோபிளேவின் மற்றும் வைட்டமின் சி உள்ளது.கலோரி அளவு 44.

தற்போதைய ஆராய்ச்சியில், வெற்றிலையில் மிகவும் வீரியமிக்க நோய் எதிர்ப்புத் திறன் கொண்ட சவிக்கால் (Chavicol) என்னும் பொருள் இருப்பதாக கண்டறியப் பட்டுள்ளது. வெற்றிலையை மென்று சாப்பிடுவதால் மலச்சிக்கல் நீங்கும். நன்கு பசி உண்டாகும். வாய்ப்புண், வயிற்றுப் புண் நீங்கும்.
வெற்றிலைக்கு முன்னம் பெறும் பாக்கை வாயிலிட்டால்
குற்றமுறும் உறவோர் கூட்டம்போம்-வெற்றிலையை
முன்னிட்டுப் பாக்கருந்த மூதறிவோர் தம் மார்பின்
மன்னிட்டு வாழும் பூ மாது..
வெற்றிலை, பாக்கு போடும்போது முதலில் பாக்கை மட்டும் போடக் கூடாது.

இது குற்றமாகும்.பாக்கை மட்டும் வாயிலிட்டு மென்று உமிழ்நீரை விழுங்கும் போது இதன் துவர்ப்பினால் கழுத்துக் குழல் சுருங்கி நெஞ்சு அடைக்கும்.மயக்கம், மூர்ச்சை அடைய ஏதுவாகும். மேலும் சொந்த பந்த உறவினர்கள் பிரிந்து விடுவர் என சாஸ்திர விதிகள் கூறுகிறது.அதனால் முதலில் வெற்றிலையை மென்று பின்பு பாக்கை வாயிலிட்டு மெல்ல மகா விஷ்ணுவின் இடது மார்பில் வாழும் பூமகள் மகாலட்சுமியின் அருள் கிட்டும்.

அடைக்காய் தின்பதில் ஊறுமுதல் நீர் நஞ்சாம் அதி பித்தம்
இரண்டாவதூறு நீரே கடையமிர்தம் மூன்றாவதூறு நீர் தான்
கனமதுர நான்காவதூறு மந்நீர் மடையெனவே ஐந்தாறிற்
சுரந்துள் ஊறி வருநீர் களைச் சுகித்து தடையுருப் பித்தமொடு
மந்த நோயும் தளர்பாண்டு நோயும் உண்டாம் தரம் சொன்னோம்.

வெற்றிலை,பாக்கு,சுண்ணாம்பு சேர்த்து உண்ணும் போது முதலில் வாயில் ஊறும் உமிழ்நீர் நஞ்சாகும் இதனை உமிழ்ந்துவிட [துப்பி விட]வேண்டும்.

இரண்டாவது மெல்லும் போது ஊறும் உமிழ்நீர் அதிக பித்தமாகும். இதனையும் உமிழ்ந்து விட வேண்டும்.மூன்றாவது மெல்லும் போது வாயில் ஊறும் உமிழ்நீர் அமிர்தமாகும். இதனை மட்டும் விழுங்க வேண்டும்.

Are you just a freelancer?
Chances are, the answer to that question, is no.
Think about it – you are a business owner and as such, you fulfill many different roles. You are a marketing expert, you are an accountant, you are a supervisor. You play some extremely vital parts to run and successfully sustain your freelance business.
How do you tackle your project management? Do you write a to-do list down for each project and each client? Do you use spreadsheets for everything? What about your team members? Do they email you their updates on a project’s status? Are they waiting to hear from you about deadlines and important tasks?
These are all questions to consider and evaluate as a freelancer and as a business owner. Sometimes everything we need to manage can become, well… unmanageable!

What is the Solution?

You need to find a project management tool that works for you, your team members, and your business. Think of what you struggle with – is it accounting? Is it the overflow of ideas that you can’t keep up with? Do you hate waiting for email updates about where a project stands?
We’ve got some amazing resources to help you get started.
Below is a list of project management tools that can aid you in getting organized and better managing your workload. Some of these are best suited for the collaboration of a team while others can help any individual. A few of these tools are extremely detailed and professional while some of them are a little less rigid in structure and can really just help in a fun, laid back set up.
Take a little bit of time to help yourself by checking these out – see if you find the project management tool that is right for you!

10 Project Management Tools to Help You Better Your Freelance Business

  1. Smart Sheet
    One of the easiest and most familiar management tools is a spreadsheet, right? Of course! This is why Smart Sheet is such a great project management tool. The basis of their organization is built on spreadsheets – except it’s not just a run-of-the-mill spreadsheet. The design is extremely sophisticated but because its use is already based on a familiar format – it’s very easy to use. Smart Sheet already has tons of templates for you to choose from or you can create your own new document. Their server makes it possible to collaborate with other team members in order to track your progress. You can set daily reminders or important dates on the calendar. You can even give administrative permissions to your teammates should they need to access to edit and make necessary updates. Smart Sheet also has mobile apps that make your team’s documents accessible on any computer, tablet or mobile device.
  2. Asana
    How much time do you spend emailing? Quite a bit? Communication in an instant is a beautiful thing. It really can help connect us with other and speed up processes like no other. What might be a drawback about email? Just the fact that its in a separate place from your work and while you can organize folders and labels, sometimes finding the information you need can take up a bit of time that could be spent better elsewhere. Enter Asana. Essentially, Asana is a project management platform in which all of your project data is held in one place. So – instead of having to toggle screens to your inbox and search for the latest update on the project’s progress, you can navigate to a specific task and get an update there. Your team members can easily leave notes (rather than send emails) and create updates so that you can have access to everything all in one location. You have the ability to assign tasks to individual team members, set reminders on the calendar and track your progress by searching for a specific piece of the project. There is a free membership which grants access to several of the basic, but unique features. From there, you can sign up and pay for premium access as well which offers more intricate and detailed features.
  3. Wrike
    If you are comfortable with Excel – you will really enjoy Wrike. This project management tool is like a super-detailed spreadsheet! 
    • You can control who has access to what. Maybe some team members need access to the calendar and the task list but not to any financial or budgeting information. Wrike allows that kind of control.
    • Their reports are extremely detailed and with these, you can identify the best places to cut back on expenses or scale down the man-power on a particular segment of the project.
    • Integrate your email into a task-list. Wrike can sync your Outlook and/or your Apple Mail to better accommodate your team. Instead of searching for emails and sending those out individually – Wrike will pull the task you designate and create an actionable list out of those items.
    There are many, many, more features to Wrike that go from simple to advanced and you can still view everything in a spreadsheet format. If you have 15 users (administrators) or less, there is a free version of the project management tool available. If your team exceeds that size, the membership prices for Wrike begin at $49 per month.
  4. Basecamp
    This project management tool is another fine example of streamlining your processes and cutting down on goose-chasing, trying to get updates, and general disorganization. The company formerly known as 37Signal, now Basecamp underwent a name change to reflect their biggest success yet.

    You can create a new project and invite people to accept membership and view the page. Here, you can give information about the specifics, the ultimate goal and any expectations in a welcome section. From there, any of the invitees can leave comments or updates for you. As the project manager, you have the ability to create new tasks – update the calendar – ask for feedback – so many things! You can upload images and PDF files so that you don’t have to email anything to anyone. Basecamp really is a fantastic dashboard to use when managing any project.They have signed up freelancers, small businesses; even national entities have used Basecamp. As a new member, your first two months are free. Thereafter, their plans begin at $20 per month and go up based on what features you’d like and how much storage space you need. The cool thing is that when you pay your monthly dues – it’s all-inclusive, (save storage space) meaning that there is not a pay-per-user structure. You can pay $20 a month and have 2 users or 200 users!
  5. TrelloTrello Cards
    Have you ever seen the website Pinterest? Think of Trello as something similar – an online pin board – only it’s task-oriented instead! This tool is great for just one user but you still have the option to invite others to your task board so that everyone can be on the same page. Trello is a completely free project management tool and it really works well for anyone who likes lists! Why? Because you can create a list on what’s called a card – and then organize those cards according to your grander scheme.For example, let’s say that you have a website to get up and running. Some of your categories might be… Design Template, PlugIns & Software, Articles & Content, and Advertising. So basically under each of these categories – you have cards. Each card can have to-do’s on it. You might place a card underneath Articles & Content with two or three ideas on it. Then on the back of that card, you can store all of your pertinent information to those ideas – like a website resource or the link to an image you want to use.
  6. Campfire
    What a fun and easy way to connect with your team members. This project management tool is a product of Basecamp (Project Management Tool #3). With this program, you have a secure server to communicate with both your team members and your clients. The chats are password-protected real-time chats that are much faster and simpler than corresponding with multiple people via email. If you click on Tour Video, you can see a snapshot of how it works. From that chat room – you have the ability to initiate a conference call. The calls have a phone number and a specific access code that everyone can dial in on and the great part is that the calls are all recorded for future review!You don’t have to download anything to your computer because the program is all web-based. Campfire does offer a free trial to see if it’s a good fit for you.
  7. Project Bubble
    Described as “simple to use,” reviews are all the rave about Project Bubble. It’s a web-based project management tool that features some of the same features as other tools available but one of their most stand-out features is the “incredibly complex” reports you can create. You can even share your status with your clients using these reports. Take a look and see how neat they are.
    Project Management Tool
    Project Bubble offers a free membership that works for those of you who have no more than 5 users but they can accommodate a company with more users!
  8. Wave
    Who hates wearing the bookkeeper’s hat? Anyone dread invoicing? Well… enter Wave! If you handle your own finances – or just want to make your accountant’s life easier – pay attention to this one. Wave is a project management tool focused on the finances and more importantly, the invoicing. The program is tailored to small businesses – specifically those with less than 9 employees or team members. That’s not to say that larger companies can’t benefit from Wave, however the team’s focus truly is on small business. What Wave is designed to help you do is create professional looking invoices – without the hassle! Choose from several different formats – input a little bit of information and ta-dah! You have created an invoice! Wave will send reminders about due dates – when to remind your clients or when to send the invoice again. You’ll receive statements each month as well that will show you what’s been invoiced, paid, or to-be-paid. This tool simply takes the hard work out of what can be an extremely daunting task.
  9. Pivotal Tracker
    Pivotal Tracker is similar to some of the other project management tools contained in this list… However, it is geared specifically towards software development. There are calendars and task lists to help manage the workload and to help the project managers oversee the status as a whole but what we found that was really neat – was a “community support” feature that every user has access to, regardless of the membership level chosen. There is a constant flow of help from other members and peers that you can gain insight from. Pivotal Tracker offers a free 60-day trial (no credit card required). From there, the plans vary in how many users have access and in how much storage space is available.
  10. Evernote
    If you haven’t checked out Evernote yet, you really should! They offer many different products but their basic program is really cool! Evernote is a place to compile all of your ideas – organize all of your to-do’s – save any resources you want to read later! You can tailor your lists to meet your needs and create different labels to help you keep everything organized. It could be a new idea to speed up your invoicing process that you don’t want to forget. Maybe you came across a really awesome article that you didn’t have time to finish. Evernote provides a place for you to save & store all of that. This is a perfect app for individuals who have a lot of ideas or those who are on the go and can’t always act on an idea right then and there. It’s completely free to open an account – all you need is your email.Recently, the company has rolled out Evernote Business. Evernote has created a project management tool that allows collaboration with your team members and gives you the ability to share information with your clients. The business edition isn’t free but it is extremely affordable, offers unlimited storage space, and provides business-class support. It’s definitely worth checking out!
