Are you looking for a better way to manage projects this year?
I’ve tried at least a half dozen different systems, and Trello has become my program of choice for project management in both my business and personal life.
In addition to using Trello to manage writing assignments and WordPress projects, I’ve used Trello for:
- Selling a house
- Buying a house
- Organizing a move
- Decorating a new living space, in collaboration with my interior designer daughter
- Planning trips
Trello is a visual system based on Kanban — that’s the process Toyota introduced as part of its “just-in-time” manufacturing efforts. Kanban (Japanese for “visual signal” or “card”) has since found its way into the world of software development, but it’s useful in a wide range of settings.
Trello took the Kanban concept and organized it into a system based on boards, lists, and cards. It’s extremely visual, and shows at a glance what you need to do, what you’re currently working on, and what you’ve completed.
Use Trello on your own, with a client, or with a team. The basic account is free, so there’s no cost to get familiar with Trello, and, depending on your needs, it could be free forever.
Setting up a Trello Account
- Navigate to trello.com (that’s my personal affiliate link), and click the big green button that says, “Sign Up ─ It’s Free.”
- Or, if you have a Google account, you can sign up with Google. Fill in your Gmail address and password, then click
The first screen you see invites you to set up a team. If you’re not ready to do that, there’s a link to skip this step. (You can add a team later.)
Trello does a great job of bringing you on board. Once you’re inside, you’ll see this screen.
Click on the Tutorial Board to open it up.
