I manage a team of 6 directs. We are an IT Services department. We each have an amount of reactive and proactive work. I have listened to the casts about assigning a task + reporting + deadline. We are trying NOZBE i.e a BaseCamp type tool and I'm finding little enthusiasm for it within the team.
I'm assuming its up to me to track tasks, how do others do this, without a huge overhead i.e. keeping it simple.
Thanks for the comments thus far. Also - seeing the number of topics re project management tools - my feeling is the podcasts about assigning work and reporting negate the need for PM tools but require the manager to maintain an overview. How are directs given the overview, is that done by the manager at weekly team meetings?
Many Thanks in anticipation
