A Case Study on Using Restyaboard to Improve Project ManagementMost people start their business projects almost randomly, not following an exact order or having enough information to guarantee success. Yet having a project, for small as it can have its science, so in this article, we are going to show you how to improve your project management and help yourself out using a tool named Restyaboard to make things easier.
Most of the project failures are given to the lack of a good project management. Among the first reasons to consider a project as failed, we can find:
- What is project management
- What is Restyaboard
- How does Restyaboard work
- How to improve project
management using Restyaboard
It may sound like too much, but let’s define this for a moment, is the process which you use to plan, direct and control, the development of an acceptable system between a minimal cost and a specific period of time.
- Unidentified or unsatisfied needs to
- Uncontrolled changes in the project.
- Excessive costs
- Delay in the accomplishment of
goals or project termination.
So this been said, when starting a project, you should identify certain features to avoid this possible failure (more on that later).
On project management there are several aspects to take in count, the most common, and especially when business related, are:
- Information analysis
- Risks evaluation
- Current situation diagnosis
- Project validation
- Range definition
- Setting the objectives
- Resources estimation
- Project formalization
- Tasks and responsibilities designation
- Project announcement
- Team training
- Activities coordination
- Approval from regulatory entities
- Systems of information and control
- Management indicators
- Begin operations
- Accompaniment in operation
- Control indicators
- Evaluation and tracking
- Progress reports
- Tendency prognostics
All these are the essential parts of a business project management and will be part of our main board later.
Restyaboard is an app based on the canvas model for organizing your project process, which you can download or use online depending on your preferences. It works by organizing activities in columns, named after essential parts of your processor categories, and filling them with mobile cards that contain your activities. This app also counts with a calendar that can be used to keep track of your dates and deadlines.
You can program Restyaboard to remind you of your of the event and sell deadlines too, so you can keep good track of your department development.
- If working in a team, this app can ease
communication since everyone can
see the status of the project on the
- You can turn on desktop notifications

- Since it counts with the board and the
calendar is like two apps in one.
You will find two main elements when using Restyaboard:
These are columns in which you can organize your content, they should preferably represent parts of a process or categories, where your cards can move depending on what you do with the activities.
Cards are small boxes that can contain your activity information; they can also be attached with files, pictures, checklists, dates, deadlines, and tags to optimize the organization of your current process.
Now that you know the basics, we recommend you to create a board that contains columns that represent the steps and needs of a project creation as stated before; also most of the steps described are sub-process and will be better carried if managed with boards of their own.
- When making your project
public, make sure all previous
steps were correctly done with
and if possible double check all
the information you have at
- Understand that a business
project is actually never
finished, you should always re-
do some steps, use new
information to improve, pivot
or reinforce your procedures,
create or improve your
products and services or even
know if and when the market
makes it better to give up.
- Is recommended if you are
investing, going for larger
earnings instead of lower risks.
