I am new to Asana and have been reading tons of use cases and watching tons of videos but am a little confused and need some advice on how to best set up projects for my small business.
Currently, it is just my partner and I running our small business, and it is just me using Asana. I have structured our business the following way:
3 main departments (Admin, Operations, Sales & Marketing) are divided into sub-departments (Admin= Communications, Finance, Management, Purchasing. Operations= Manufacturing, Services, R&D. Sales & Marketing= Branding, Content, PR, Marketing, and Sales.)
I have set up projects for each of the sub-departments (Communications, Finance, etc). Some of those sub-departments have additional projects (The Management project also has a Business Planning project for example). My question is, am I overcomplicating things? Would it be better to just have 3 projects for the 3 main departments and then use custom fields to differentiate the sub-departments?
I feel as though I am thinking too much on this and need some advice to simplify my process. Any advice or comments are much appreciated!
