Monday.com, Asana, Microsoft Project, & Smartsheet are all tools you COULD use to manage a project. Each of them is fighting to achieve market dominance by convincing you that they are the best tool. These companies get bloggers to tell you why they are the best; they take out ads that stalk your cookies and clutter your web searches. How do you know what is the best?
About This Workshop
We’ve learned that Project Management Tools are a lot like choosing the best motorcycle; it all depends on what you plan to do with it. If you want to go 180 miles per hour on a straight stretch of freeway, a sportbike is the best. If you’re going to ride on the dirt or sand, then a dirt bike is best. And if you want to cruise around, take in the sights and look like a badass, a cruiser is the way to go.
Our clients all ascribe to different tools. Some use MS Project; others use Smartsheet, etc… So we remain flexible and figure out how to apply our proven Project Leadership best practices to our client’s PM Tool “Du Jour.” The only tool that is NEVER the best PM tool is Excel.
So eventually, you have to select a tool that isn’t Excel; now what? It’s time to use it to Get Sh*t Done! The first step, sign up for a training course and learn how to use the tool. But wait… Did you want to learn how the tool works? Or do you want to learn how to use the tool to ROCK a project all the way to completion?
Join J. Scott, Founder @120VC and author of “The Irreverent Guide to Project Management, An Agile Approach to Enterprise Project Management,” and “It’s Never Just Business, It’s About People,” on a journey that will teach you how to use Smartsheet to ROCK a project all the way to completion. A bonus is that you will be able to apply the best practices you learn to any tool as long as it’s not Excel! Why not Excel? Sign up for the workshop and get after it!

Great class to learn how to leverage the GSD approach within SmartSheet. Always engaging and you get to take the templates that you just learned how to use with you for your own future projects.
This was a very nice experience, informative and fun! I look forward to more from this group!
