Trello is a project management tool and collaboration tool that lets you organize your work in a way that is meaningful to you. It can be used to manage your personal projects, or in a nonprofit organization to manage the work of your staff, volunteers and board.
The key to success is to organize your Trello board in a way that is meaningful to you and your organization. You can create a board for each program area, each project, or each volunteer. You can also create boards that are collections of information that you need to manage on a regular basis, such as your budget, your meeting notes, your volunteer schedules, or your strategic plan.
Once you have created your boards and you have organized your work into each board, you can assign tasks to each board member and each board. You can create checklists that will allow you to collaborate with staff, volunteers and board members. You can also create cards that represent the information your staff, volunteers and board need to know about the task at hand. For example, you can create cards that represent a budget item, a meeting agenda, or a volunteer schedule.
The beauty of Trello is that it gets out of your way and lets you manage your work in a way that is meaningful to you. You can create your boards and your cards in any order that is meaningful to you. You can move cards around to different boards, or reshuffle them within a board. You can organize your cards and boards in a way that makes sense to you.
Trello is a tool that is available for free, and it is easy to learn. It is a great tool for nonprofits to use to manage the work of the organization in a way that is meaningful to you.
