Collaborative Project Management via Google Docs

by on Feb.20, 2009, under technology

Here’s an example of how the new tools provided can help make our lives easier.. a few of us are planning for the Singapore Photographers 1st Anniversary.

At 3.37pm, I sent a message to the core team members via facebook if anyone had time to do up a proposal.
At 4.25pm, another message sent to say I’ve created a google doc so we can work on it together
At 4.43pm, we have 4 persons working on the same doc simultaneously adding in info, asking questions etc.
By 6.30pm, we have brainstormed on most aspects already.

Within just 2 hours with no prior planning, we were able to achieve what would have taken days to organise a brainstorm session. We’ll be working on the same document in the next few days…

You’re welcome to see the work in progress at

    Don’t forget there are online sites dedicated to project management that may be more suitable like Base camp (www.basecamphq.com/). Some are free, some are not but you might find them more useful. Putting all your content into a document is OK but it will grow really big really quick and then become difficult to manage

    Yes, I agree. Google Doc is a great tools for collaborative work. There are othe providers, but they do not have the integration googleprovides with Gmail & calender.

    I was from IBM and Lotus Consulting. Google basically translate features of Lotus Notes into free public utilities. They are not fully there yet, but it’s good enough for end users need.

    We at Deskaway also use google docs for collaboration along with our own collaboration software. It is immensely helpful given that our team is spread over the country!
