Tools For Scaling Your Organization
Susan Mernit

Friday, October 15, 2010

As organizations expand, scaling up management and work flow tools is an essential task. Given that most people don't have the time or money to build their own custom systems to manage work flow for remote staffers and freelances, what are the tools valuable to scale up with--and how do you know what tools to use for what?

This white paper and Webinar takes a look at a set of tools used by agile organizations and offers descriptions of the tools, appraisals of what their strengths and weaknesses are, and some guidance on how media and community organizations might put them to work.

Tools discussed include:

  • Google docs
  • Google calendar
  • Basecamp (project management)
  • Open Atrium (project management)
  • Doodle (meeting scheduling)
  • Toggl (time tracking)
