USQ has created a project management resource to help tournament directors organize and plan their events. The resource can also be used for team leaders who are organizing in-person events that follow the return to play guidelines for COVID-19.
USQ has always strived to run smooth and successful events. One way we do that is by being as organized as possible on-site during regional and national championships. In the past year, the USQ events department began using project management platform Trello on-site to work collaboratively and efficiently with all staff members.
Trello is a flexible and visual way to create and complete tasks. It's a project management tool that organizes tasks into boards, and in one glance, tells you what's being worked on, who's working on what, and where something is in a process. Each board can be assigned to a certain staff member or team, given a due date, a description, and attach files from Google Drive.
In an effort to provide tournament directors with as many resources as possible, USQ has provided a template and tips for how to utilize Trello for their events. We have shared our tasks and schedule that we use for USQ-hosted events. TDs can use this as an outline for planning and executing their events. TDs can view the Trello template on Excel here and Trello tips here. These resources can also be useful for team leaders, especially those organizing in-person activities that follow USQ’s return to play guidelines for COVID-19.
Additional TD resources can be found on the USQ website here.
