Blogs to Manage Projects
Jonathan Peterson writes that “blogs + RSS + trackback pings + Google would be significantly more powerful than whatever is currently in use in 95% of IT organizations.”
Lets look at a blogged IT organization:
1. Each developer and/or development team would keep a project blog with RSS.
2. The Project Manager would subscribe to all those blogs and would publish a roll-up blog with links to details of various issues.
3. The program manager would subscribe to the RSS feeds for every project or team that impacts his project portfolio and would publish his own blog.
4. The Powerpoint deck would now have live links to blog entries at the program office level.
