What is the best way to manage a group/team of 2-4 people?

If I am working on a group project or living with roommates, what is the best way to make sure that we are all on the same page with what we have to do?

    Trello

    Organize anything, together

    For small groups I like to put everything into Trello. Can't beat it in terms of simplicity - but is also highly configurable and extensible. I think the perfect small team "stack" is Trello + Slack. Integrate the two and have trello changes post into slack. Keeps everyone up to speed with what's happening on the project and where things are at. "Official" work/conversation goes into Trello. Then side convo's/chat in Slack.

    Super easy to use, pretty, mobile-optimized, and simple to add people to tasks and communicate.

    Any.do 3.0

    Organize all aspects of your life with Any.do

    Ryan Hoover78Founder, Product Hunt · Written
    Some people use messaging apps like Slack or Facebook Messenger, but it lacks structure for tasks. Check out Any.do. It supports shared task lists, which could be used for paying rent, buying groceries, dinner dates, etc.

    Asana

    The task management tool, completely redesigned

    Kyle Hess5Fintech Product Manager · Written
    I still think Asana is the best tool for everything from "quick jot down a couple tasks" to planning a big project. Free up to 15 folks.

    Our team of 10 uses Basecamp mainly as a shared to-do list categorized by project.

  6. I think of it like a private Facebook - you can have groups, post publicly, private message, events, to-do list post doc, pics etc. Cross platform, although mobile features are limited.

    My experience has been strong communication and collaboration are essential for project success. I would use Slack for async communication anywhere on any device and Kyber to keep the tasks in order.

    Slack is our go-to alongside Trello for collaborating as a small team on software projects.

    Real-time team messenger tool

    A must-have for managing communication and projects within the team! Also, it's cross platform and free to use. Organize projects channel wise, and manage tasks within using its to-do feature. Offers a suite of productivity apps that come pre-installed on the platform. For video chat, there's the video conf feature too. Integrates with most apps like Trello, Asana etc. Besides, can use its APIs to integrate your own app. Quite easy-to-use and intuitive. Works just fine with non development teams too.

    The best way to ensure you folks are indeed on the same page is by sharing regular feedback. I think you should take a look at Teambit - it’s a lightweight tool that can seamlessly integrate into your workflow and make feedback a daily habit in your team. I know paying for things when you are that small can be challenging, so we actually made Teambit free for teams of up to 8 people. Btw, it’s two of us in Teambit team and we’ve been using it successfully for the past year, so promise it can help ensure you folks are aligned.
