We are project managers. We did several hundred projects during the last 15 or so years - for DAX companies, for Fortune 500 companies, for smaller companies. There are tons of frameworks, best practices and guidelines to support planning and tracking projects. But what we really lacked was a good application to help us getting the actual work done.
Project management tools are great for long term planning and getting a helicopter perspective on things. But what about the daily business? What about all those meetings, conference calls and discussions? We needed something to get a decision "written in stone" so nobody can neglect it later, to collect information needed for a task or project and - most of all - to get our tasks, and tasks other people had to do for our projects, organized and tracked. That's why we started creating Organize.
Organize is not about your shopping list. You can do this with Organzine too. But if that's all you need to organize, look somewhere else. There are great tools out there if you have a small number of items you want to be reminded of.
Organize is about being more productive in a complex world. About easily collecting ideas and stuff when things happen - as web link, as text, as picture or as voice memo. It's about organizing that stuff into projects and, if you like GTD, also into contexts. About being reminded of the next tasks for yourself and your colleagues. Basically about getting back into the drivers seat and controlling things, instead of being driven by them.
So who will benefit most from Organize? If you're a freelancer, project manager, or working on several tasks during your work day, Organize is the right choice for you.
But please keep in mind: This is only our first release - so we know it's not perfect yet. But wait for the things to come. And if you have any good ideas on how to improve Organize - please send them to us at email@example.com!
Please look online at http://www.taskfabric.com/ in the Support section. We provided a separate manual explaining the basic ideas and concepts behind Organize. If you are already familiar with GTD, PMBOK, PRINCE2 or any other of the major organizational or project management theories, you will instantly recognize many of the ideas behind Organize. If not, have a look at the Organize Concepts Manual. It will not (and cannot) give you a complete overview over those theories, but it will explain as short as possible the system used by Organize to manage your tasks.
