    We have a fairly large integrated communications department (20+ people), and I’m looking for any ideas on improving communications within our own department. The majority of staff do all sit in one common area, however everyone is very silo-ed in their jobs and projects do not get communicated to all as a whole. The biggest complaint I hear is, “I have no idea what is going on in our department outside of the stuff I do.”

    Do any of you have any pointers on how to better share projects with the entire staff (without sending a weekly email)? Any ideas would be so appreciated!

    Hi – Our department has been using Asana for about a year-and-a-half. Though its primary use is to assign and follow tasks (project management), it has a summary page to see what everyone has on their plate. Highly recommended! I think there are both free and paid versions. Each person gets a unique icon. When you look at all projects, you can sort by who it is assigned to, due date or a few other things. We have our jobs in two separate sections — web requests and general design requests. Switching between them is one click. If you want a screenshot, I’d be glad to share it. -Ellen
