  • Tutorials and software for Project organizing and planning

    Dear all,

    Although I know this is not directly connected to GTD system, I will send my question anyway because I know that everyone has dealt somehow with this.

    I just read (for another time) David's GTD chapter about projects, and I have understood the theory, but I'm struggling in practice.

    I try to get from Brainstorming phase to an nice organization set of documents, but I keep being entangled in the massive amount of details of a project.

    Are you aware of an online tutorial, document and/or software tool that could help me teach and train myself in organizing a project?

    My projects usually are involving the most 3 persons.

    I would like to be teached on how to 'Organize' my brainstorm ideas and reach the next actions and keep event sequences under control.

    Thank you
    Costas

    re: Tutorial for Learning Projects

    Here are some Quicktime movie tutorials you can download and click through. They apply specifically to the Ready-Set-Do! approach for getting things done on the mac; but the principles are the same regardless of what computer or software program you use.

    Hope that helps.

      I realize it's not what you asked, but one thing you might want to try would be using some mind mapping software to help organize your brainstorming.

      I was quite skeptical, but found it to be very useful for a recent brainstorming session.

        If you are interested in building mind maps with software, you might want to try FreeMind. It's a free open-source application.

          For mind mapping, I also recommend http://comapping.com/ (great for collaborative sessions with remote partners). Another choice (free format mind mapping) would be http://www.mindomo.com/
