I’ve been using (and talking about) the GTD system for about three years, and along the way I’ve tried a variety of tools ranging from the most basic (paper) to the most sophisticated (humans) to help capture and manage my tasks.
For the better part of Grockit‘s existence, we’ve been using Pivotal Tracker to manage our agile software development process. Without question, it’s the best organizational tool for agile development teams we’ve seen, and we consider it an essential part of our productivity.
I’m working on a series of blog entries showing how we use it at Grockit for software development, but thought I’d show how you could use Tracker as a personal GTD-style task manager.
Here’s a very fast and light tour of some of the Tracker basics with a bias towards using it as a GTD system. If you’re a software developer and practice or want to practice agile software development, keep an eye out for a series of more extensive tours in the near future.
