Tame the chaos and complete projects with confidence

While it’s true that there are dozens of project management methodologies to choose from, the fundamentals remain the same. You start by breaking down the project into manageable parts, develop a schedule or checklist to assign work to your team members, and track the development of that work to monitor progress. Calendars and email are great tools for scheduling, but quickly reveal their limitations as projects grow and the planning, scheduling, and controlling of work gets more complicated.

Wrike was designed to help you manage nearly any kind of basic work and is capable enough to tackle advanced projects, thanks to its flexibility and options for customization.

Start by breaking down your project into actionable items called tasks. Tasks can be assigned to one or more members of your team. This template includes some sample tasks that can be renamed or deleted as needed. To assign a task, select it from the list, click Add assignee, and select a member of your team. If the person is not in Wrike yet, simply add their email address and an invitation to join Wrike will be sent to them.

After a task has been assigned, click on the date selector to set the start and due date.

To see your project’s overall progress, click on the Gantt Chart view. This displays the project and all tasks on an interactive and dynamic timeline that lets you reschedule tasks and set milestones and dependencies. To adjust the length of any task, simply drag the due-date marker.

You can also use the pre-configured dashboard to monitor your progress. It shows you which tasks are unassigned, due this week, overdue, or completed.

This template will get you up and running quickly with a basic project management framework, but you can change or customize anything to adapt to your workflow.
