Effective Project Management With Trello – A Training Course Review
Effective Project Management With Trello is a popular Udemy course that teaches participants how to manage their projects and team using a free cloud-based software. It attempts to address the challenges that a project manager or team leader experiences daily. The course then provides a solution by introducing a visual organizing software and its features, its native iPhone application and some tips and techniques to boost productivity and be more effective.
People who are accidentally placed in project management roles and responsibilities are seldom provided the proper training and tools to be more effective in their jobs. Instead of being in control of the situation, they are overwhelmed by countless unproductive meetings that take most of their time so that by the end of the day, very little to none gets actually done. The situation can get more complicated when multiple projects are running simultaneously, and/or the team is located in several different locations or time zones. This course will enable the participants to use Trello as quickly as possible as a tool to organize work, manage projects, and collaborate with the team so that time is actually spent on getting the project done.
This course is open for students of all levels. It is ideal for those who are in project management roles looking for an accessible and online tool such as Trello. Those with an iPhone will gain maximum benefit. Trello is also available in the Android platform, but its use is outside the scope of this course. This Udemy on-demand course is available in the web, iOS and Android platforms.
