With remote team management, keeping a close eye on quality becomes more challenging. Make it a habit to record updates, work progress, and any project changes
. Handing over outdated documentation to your team is not the best practice.
We ate Freshcode use Trello dashboard for tracking work progress. Our team leads and managers create the following core lists to prioritize and manage tasks properly and fast:
- EVERGREEN - the core description of the onboarding process and long-term overall company's goals. It's the crucial column in the management template.
- TODO - section with cards representing tasks and ideas
- IN PROGRESS - this progress bar contains cards with tasks that are currently being performed. It ensures the team concentrates on finishing old work, rather than starting new work.
- DONE - probably the most pleasant section with a list of completed tasks
Such structure represents just basic principles and can be customized according to the needs of your company. It prevents work from piling up and streamlines workflow in a great way.
And remember, aim for progress, not perfection: done is better than perfect.
