Step #2: Plan

Plan SMART from the start

The heart of your project life cycle. You’ll need to have set deadlines, a list of deliverables, appropriate milestones in place and a clear plan on how you’ll allocate resources and communicate effectively throughout the life of the project.

Step #1: Initiate

Launch your next successful project

Everything you need to take your new project from first discussions right through to setting up your team's virtual office.

Start by creating a new dashboard. From here you can add team members, identify capacity for new work and assign or reassign tasks depending on the needs of your new project.
