Organizing remote teams with Basecamp
This week we started using Basecamp as a tool to organize different distributed project teams.
I like the fact that it's web. I kind of miss the MS Project utilities and structured views, but at the same time like this approach that goes more with the lay-back philosophy and methodology we have on my current projects.
The functionalities we hired are messages (half way between a blog and a forum), to-do lists, milestones, writeboards (collaborative documents), file sharing and resources time sheets.
I wonder how much adoption it'll have among us. Even if I haven't yet spent enough time on it I can see its potential to help us organize our remote teams.
