"In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. But in practice, there is." Yogi Berra

Have you ever had the unpleasant feeling that things are not moving fast enough on a file? Not knowing exactly who is doing what in a project? To be the only one to "see" all the subjects to be dealt with and to understand their respective level of urgency, their interdependence, their importance? Or to notice the lack of operational coordination between team members? etc. etc.

These situations happen every day in companies where the team members are motivated, competent and eager to do well. But there is "something" missing to make it "work".

A key element for the success of a collaborative work, an activity or a project with several people, is the possibility for each member of the team to see where we are in the flow of the tasks to be carried out collectively and individually (the "who does what?"), to become aware of what is progressing (and what is not...)

This allows to clarify priorities and to act accordingly, and to reassure oneself on the good functioning of the team in motion, in real time, at any moment. It is about seeing what is happening and reacting collectively, simply and intelligently...

There are many tools to facilitate this collective intelligence, and to provide the expected service: help to see, and to organize as a team, without creating additional complexity. The simpler and more intuitive they are, the easier they will be to use and adopt.

Trello is one of the simplest visual management tools available. Its organization in boards listing action cards that move around like playing cards ("kanban"), partly explains its immediate success in teams and its formidable efficiency in animating and coordinating a project.

In this webinar, we will introduce how Trello works and its advanced features, and we will go over what makes visual management so powerful.
