The left hand needs to know what the right hand is doing but never should it be at the cost of actual work getting done.
Yes, of course. Coordination is pivotal to the success of any team with a billion moving parts. However, effective coordination is often loosely defined. Is it just a shared team task list? Is it a place to share files? Is it dedicating more time to in-person meetings? Spoiler alert: the answer is no to all the above.
Better conversations will push projects to conclusions. Convo is built in a way where important decisions can be made with multiple stakeholders without slowing each other down. That’s where the elusive productivity gains lie. Kill two birds with one stone — stay coordinated and produce great work alongside with teammates with minimal blockers.
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 so everyone is on the same page.
Centrally upload files so teammates don’t have to hunt down who attached what, when, and why.
Produce, share, and iterate collectively and clearly to put forward the best possible output.
Faster coordination. Faster feedback. Faster to market.
