About the To-do List template

What is a To-do list?

To-do lists are simple, yet effective tools that can break down bigger tasks into smaller, concrete steps. They can range from individual daily tasks, to larger group goals. You can make a to-do list for any project, anytime your team needs to get something done. Breaking down tasks into concrete steps helps your team reach your goals with ease.

What are the benefits of to-do lists? They are a great way to organize tasks, from the mundane to the more difficult. They also keep your team focused, and progressing toward your goals.

How to use the To-do List template

If you already have a physical list, start by taking a photo of it and uploading it to the online board. Next, you can prioritize tasks by color-coding them or organizing them by urgency. You can upload other file types like photos, videos, and documents to keep all relevant information in one place.

Here’s an example of a simple, actionable to-do list:

  1. Send an email update to the team: 9am today

  2. Call the design agency to finalize mockups: 1:00pm today

  3. Touch base with recruiters about new role: Tuesday

  4. Meet with the engineering team: Thursday

5 tips for creating a to-do list

  1. Assign due dates: It’s too easy to make a list of tasks you need to accomplish and let it sit on your computer. To incentivize yourself to finish your tasks, try assigning due dates to each item on the list. That makes it simpler for you to track milestones, keep yourself focused, and make sure everything gets done.

  2. Sort your list based on priorities: If you don’t have concrete deadlines for each task, you can also sort your list according to the urgency of each task. Put the more urgent tasks toward the top and work your way down.

  3. Revise your list daily: At the beginning or end of each day, take a look at your list. Move things around as new needs come up. Take the time to check things off.

  4. Reward yourself for completing tasks: Some people like to assign rewards for finishing each task. To motivate yourself, try writing down the ways you plan to treat yourself when you finish something up.

  5. Limit yourself to 3 to 5 tasks: We’ve all created huge to-do lists with 10 or 12 tasks. It’s overwhelming to stare at a list with dozens of things you haven’t accomplished. Instead, limit yourself to bite-sized chunks of work, and stick to 3 to 5 tasks you can get through in a day or a week.

Stakeholder Analysis Template

Managing stakeholders is integral to completing a project on time and meeting expectations, so here’s how to use a stakeholder analysis to help. A stakeholder analysis empowers you to meet expectations and complete projects on time by identifying individuals, groups, and organizations with a vested interest in a program or process. In a typical stakeholder analysis, you’ll prioritize stakeholders based on their influence on a project and seek to understand how best to interface with them throughout the course of the project.

FMEA Analysis Template

When you’re building a business or running a team, risk comes with the territory. You can’t eliminate it. But you CAN identify it and mitigate it, to up your odds of success. Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is a powerful tool designed to help you manage risk and potential problems by spotting them within a process, product, or system. And you’ll spot them earlier in your process—to let you sidestep costly changes that arise late in the game or, worse, after they’ve impacted your customers and their experience.

A work plan is essentially a roadmap for a project. It articulates the steps you must take to achieve the desired goal, sets demonstrable objectives, and establishes measurable deliverables. An effective work plan guides you throughout the project lifecycle, allowing you to realize an outcome by collaborating with your team. Although work plans vary, they generally contain four core components: goals, strategy, tactics, and deliverables.
