Project Management with Kurt Schrader
Software projects are organized and planned using project management software. Examples of project management software include JIRA, Trello, and Asana. There are hundreds of tools for managing a software project because there are infinite ways that a project could be managed.
Google Docs changed project management by allowing documents to be easier to share and collaborate on. Newer SaaS tools such as Slack, Dropbox, and Notion have taken the design lessons from social networking apps to make enterprise software more engaging.
As the tools improve, our project management strategies change, and new software tools emerge to fit those new management strategies.
