There are a great deal of really good collaboration/project management tools that are web-based (my favorite) and there are project management software brands that require you to download. I use CentralDesktop, which is web-based, but this is not a promotional blast for any cloud or collaboration brand in particular. This blog post is about a feature that is prime on the best of the best of collaboration workspaces that I wanted to shine a light on. This feature is the"MILESTONE".
Milestones can be used for individual projects as well as a way to keep an eye on how your business plan is developing whether short or long term. It can be used for personal accountability and when working with a team, it's a way to define goals and ensure that everyone stays on task. You know that feeling you get when you complete a project? Such a rush, a sense of accomplishment and you really want to celebrate! Integrating milestones in your business processes, especially if your teams are working with you remotely, is the best thing you can do to get that rush of accomplishment every time.
