32mins 01secs

Task Management is a fundamental job role of Executive Assistants. Developing and maintaining a well managed ‘to-do’ list where it is easy to identify the priority of tasks and the stakeholders involved in their execution is something an indispensable assistant needs to resolve. 

In this solo episode Liz discusses the importance of task management, how a notebook and pen will continue to remain an EA’s go-to tools and how tools such as Trello (based on the Japanese Kanban board approach) can be a great way to automate your task management to drive accountability, communication and collaboration with stakeholders and team members.

The recent announcement that Atlassian is acquiring Trello is discussed as are a number of alternative tools such as Wunderlist, Asana and Todoist.
