Atlas Objectives and Basecamp

Basecamp is all about communication and collaboration 

We are fans of Basecamp and 37 Signals, the creator of Basecamp.  Basecamp makes it easy for people in different roles with different responsibilities to communicate and work together. It’s a place to share files, have discussions, collaborate on documents, assign tasks, and check due dates.  If you would like to learn more about Basecamp, click here

Atlas Objectives is designed to get everyone aligned in the same direction. Before you start a Basecamp project it is important that everyone understands the Goal.  That sounds simple, but weeks into a project the Goal can sometimes become obscure or forgotten.  Atlas Objectives makes sure the Goal is always clear and at the top of the page.

Atlas Objectives helps break the project up into distinct parts.  Collaboration is important but also important for each team member to understand their role in the project.  Creating a set of Objectives for each person in the project makes it clear what is expected of them.

Atlas Objectives lets you agree on Strategies.  Getting the project team up and running at top speed is the purpose of collaboration sites.  But it is critical that each person has a Strategy on how they will achieve the desired results.  Atlas Objectives provides the methodology for each person to describe their Strategy for completing their Objectives.  When a Strategy is written down it can be reviewed and improved.

Atlas Objectives tracks your team's progress with Milestones.  There will be many collaboration due dates that come and go, but Milestones are created within Atlas Objectives to show high level progress against a Strategy.  The Dashboard provides an easy way to see the current state of the project.

Basecamp is a great communication tool for working on your projects.
Objectives delivers a measurable plan and strategy for setting the direction.

A Perfect Plan

Atlas Objectives is designed to be that first step where you set your Goal, assign Objectives, and create Strategies.  Your Basecamp collaboration will benefit from having all of your team members aligned and working together efficiently.
