Cristian Andrei, founder of EasyplanPm “We’re sold on a promise that the internet makes us “harder, better, faster, stronger”, which, most often, it does brilliantly. But one would be foolish to think that, it doesn’t come with side effects.”
The average UK employee deals with around 36 e-mails per day but still misses one third. This phenomenon amplifies when a team use e-mail up and forth to manage projects as one could easily lose track of the information flow.
A Temple University study found that as you give people more and more unorganized information they “reach cognitive and information overload. Activity falls off in the part of the brain responsible for decisions making and control of emotions, and they begin to make bad decisions and stupid errors”
According to Cristian Andrei, founder of EasyplanPm, another problem when dealing with a project is multitasking “unorganized information leads to hardcore multitasking, which makes us shallower in our thinking process, which in turn hurts our creativity and productivity."
“The answer stands in the tools that we use, and the way we use them. We can trade the bad habit of managing a business through e-mails and endless meetings for a good project management software. This sort of application can help us organize all the information together in one single place, easily accessed by any team member. A good tool should allow us to organize and approach tasks by importance, queuing and delegate them to others."
A project management application can positively affect everybody dealing with a project, either personal or professional, by improving efficiency and offering a clear and organized perspective of all the available information.
