Trello is the #1 collaborative task management tool for teams. When we ask people why they love Trello, the answer is usually the same: 'Trello has revolutionized the way we manage tasks and has made us much more productive!' 

So Trello is great to get stuff done. But how do you decide on the best course of action when tasks and projects are piling up? 

People have found creative ways to sort out their Trello priorities, mostly applying intuition and common sense. While this approach works for smaller to-do lists, relying solely on intuition is a risky method when it comes to large-scale and costly projects. The airfocus Power-Up is here to help you prioritize your Trello cards and build more effective roadmaps.

Prioritization – the #1 skill for winning teams

According to Gartner research, every year, between $300 and $600 billion dollars invested in IT deployments in North America is wasted due to ineffective prioritization.

To eliminate this waste, you need structured prioritization scoring that takes the bigger picture into account. This will help you to define a priority-based roadmap so you can make sure you're doing the right things at the right time. 

Let's say you're developing and marketing an elegant mobile app. A project like this usually has several moving parts, all with their own lists of tasks and requirements: Customers and partners have feature requests, you need to decide on how to best spend your marketing dollars, and then there are always your special projects that fight for attention and resources. In order to execute efficiently, you need to know what to prioritize. Which features have the biggest impact? Which campaigns should be cut? What steps need to come first? This can be hard to track and communicate, especially if you're working with multiple teams using different tools or apps to manage workflows. 

Get your priorities straight with airfocus and Trello

Reminder: airfocus is a solution for teams to prioritize projects, features, and initiatives and build more effective roadmaps. 

airfocus is now offered as a seamless Power-Up so that teams using Trello can focus on the most important stuff. By syncing tasks and priority scores from one tool to another, you'll never drop the ball on a project again!

Sustainability in Product Design
Sustainability is a top-two product development priority for less than half of tech product leaders. Surely that number needs to be a little higher? Unfortunately, there are some roadblocks that are stopping tech developers from being able to realize their full, eco-friendly potential. Sustainability in product design is not just possible, but it’s definitely in our future. The question is about just how soon we can get there.
