We’re engaging in a big spring clean of our Asana boards, and we’re trying to conceptualize and organize some best practices for our small (18 EEs) manufacturing business. We’re on Asana Premium.
We find we can classify our teams/projects in some of the following ways:
Ongoing processes, with recurring task management and cross-functional teams (e.g. Inventory Management Process)
Term-limited projects with cross-functional teams (e.g. Product Launch)
Information Centers (e.g. Employee resource hubs, with various HR tasks like PTO request processing, or to access the Employee Handbook)
We’re also thinking that each department “team” might want to have each role as a project, so that employees have some flexibility for structuring their own workflows but in a way that has visibility to the rest of their team or the company. (Maybe we should be using the “My Tasks” differently?)
We’re curious how others might be structuring both term-limited projects and ongoing processes, and if there are some best practices folks want to share. Are we making the best use of the features available to us in Premium? Are there features/tools in the next level up that might help us better manage the various tasks?
(We’re also trying to decide a best place for procedure manuals/informational documents, as having multiple layers of sub tasks to help walk an EE through a process sometimes feels at risk of getting lost and/or difficult to keep updated.)
Please let me know if I can better explain/clarify this clean-up project, but I’d love to hear the community’s thoughts! How can we better conceptualize the work we do, and structure it in Asana? TIA! - Sasha
