Own your process
Adapt a Kanban board to fit your custom dev process. The Kanban gives you an instant overview of every task without requiring regular team updates. While working, make use of built-in progress indicators, showing due dates and burndown chart reports to monitor tasks and evaluate the performance of new features.
Work towards a Goal
Combine all tasks related to releasing a specific feature by making them all part of the same goal. You can always attach key files to specific tasks, which allows your dev team to focus on building great things instead of hunting for files. Creating goals is also a great team motivator!
Task breakdown with checklists
Do the tasks in your development process contain multiple steps? Break the task down! Explain each step in detail and clarify your exact requirements with checklists. There is nothing better than checking off items from a list once you've completed them.
