Digital, a team affair: 4 essential tools for managing teamwork at its best

back to blog

Teamwork is renowned for developing everyone’s creativity and for creating a great atmosphere in the office. But let’s face it, it requires effective management, which isn’t always easy when it comes to choosing the right tools and platforms.

In this article, we present four essential tools for optimizing teamwork management. So, let’s go!

An instant messaging platform, the basis

This kind of platform plays an essential role in team collaboration. It offers real-time communication and promotes fast, super-smooth interaction.

These tools, such as Slack, Microsoft Teams and others, provide a virtual space where your team members can exchange ideas, discuss projects and solve problems instantly. Using instant messaging eliminates communication delays, promotes faster decision-making and strengthens the sense of connectivity within your team, even if its members are geographically dispersed.

The function for creating specific channels enables discussions to be structured according to projects, facilitating information management. What’s more, the ability to integrate other tools and applications into these platforms enhances efficiency by providing direct access to documents, project updates and important notifications.

An indispensable project management platform

The goal? Optimize efficiency and coordination within a team.

These tools, such as Productive, Asana or Trello, provide a centralized space where team members can collaborate, plan and track the progress of different tasks. Project management often involves coordinating multiple activities, and these platforms make it possible to create task lists, assign responsibilities, define deadlines and track progress in real time.

These platforms facilitate the tracking of dependencies between tasks, rapid problem resolution, and smoother collaboration by allowing team members to work simultaneously on specific aspects of the project.

Clearly, this is an essential tool for ensuring consistency, effective collaboration and successful team projects. It’s important to provide your company with an overview of the progress of different projects, from different angles: production, budget, deadlines, etc.

A file storage and sharing platform

This team collaboration component gives you a centralized space for collaborative document storage and access.

Tools such as Google Drive, Dropbox and Microsoft OneDrive enable team members to upload, share and collaborate on files in real time. This can eliminate some of the challenges associated with version management and data loss.

The key benefit? The centralization of information, of course, which will enable easy accessibility and seamless collaboration on shared documents, promoting super team productivity and effective communication among each team member!

A creative visualization tool for brainstorming

This tool, such as FigJam for example, provides a collaborative virtual space for your teams to work visually and interactively.

These tools provide online whiteboards where team members can collaborate in real time to create diagrams, flowcharts, mind maps and other graphic representations. FigJam enables ideas to be expressed visually, facilitating mutual understanding and creative problem-solving (using brainstorming and tutti quanti).

Advantages include the ability to work remotely while maintaining a collaborative working environment, the centralization of ideas on a shared platform, and the ability to integrate multimedia files. Using a creative visualization platform, teams can organize their thoughts, develop project plans, and stimulate innovation in a visual way, enhancing clarity and collaboration within the team.

In addition to FigJam, other examples of similar platforms include Miro, Jamboard, Lucidchart or MindMeister, for example.

As you’ve probably already realized, teamwork is great. But, arming yourself with the right tools is the key to unlocking its full potential. It’s important to act with strategy, communication and structure to develop your full potential and thus avoid getting lost 💡
Definitely plan some training.

We hope this article has provided you with some practical insights to meet the needs of your business and your teams. Sometimes, it’s precisely those little things, those little tools that change the dynamic, improve collaboration and contribute to the ongoing success of your projects.

So let these tools become your allies for a more effective team than ever before 😋
