When it comes to keeping your team organized, free tools are your friends.

Whether you’re a white-boarding fiend, a sticky-note aficionado or a fan of keeping lists and schedules in Evernote, it’s important to find a way to keep your team on task and on the same page. At Granger, each department implements a different system that works for them. For example, Creative Arts uses an online organizational tool called Trello.

It’s where they keep bulletin boards of upcoming series ideas and arts elements, organize what new events need to be promoted and keep everyone aware of deadlines. They have found it to be a great, free tool for staying on track. What sort of free tools are you finding helpful?
