Managing a team online — Business Management Daily: Free Reports on Human Resources, Employment Law, Office Management, Office Communication, Office Technology and Small Business Tax Business Management Daily
In the July issue, we suggested Jump.com as a useful Web site to help you manage a project team. Another effective tool is Yahoo! Messenger, a free instant messaging service (messenger.yahoo.com). It lets you know whenever one of your team members logs on, so that you can easily exchange information after hours. Start-up is a slight hassle, however. You’ll need to register, get your ID and then wait about 10 minutes for the program to download if you use Microsoft Windows.
