Beyond Project “Management”

The left hand needs to know what the right hand is doing but it shouldn’t be at the cost of actual work getting done.

We know coordination is important; however, more often than not, it’s loosely defined. Is it just a shared team task list? Is it a place to share files? This feels incomplete.

Better conversations will push projects to conclusions.

In-person meetings can be great but sometimes a rare luxury in a fast-paced office. Convo is built in a way where important decisions can be made with multiple stakeholders without slowing each other down. We want to go for both — keep coordinated AND produce great work alongside with teammates with minimal blockers.

Our vision is to have the right work conversations visible, inclusive, and contextualized so productivity (and relationships) don’t suffer. Ultimately, we want you to spend more time with your ideas, your creativity, and the often neglected un-automatable parts of work.

This is more than a small, incremental improvement over email, but instead, an evolved workflow that can deliver serious, compounding results.

Faster coordination. Faster feedback. Faster to market.

Planning a project with Convo:

  • Start a Group to keep everything together
  • Post an overview including objectives, timing, budget and performance metrics visible to the whole project team
  • @mention teammates or stakeholders and annotate specifically who owns what and when it’s needed
  • Centrally upload files so teammates don’t have to hunt down who attached what, when, and why
  • Produce, share, and iterate collectively and clearly. Put forward the best possible output
  • Ship it
