Clarizen Brings Project Management to Slack

Mike Vizard

To one degree or another, everyone is a project manager. If there’s something that needs to be accomplished by a certain date, it’s by definition a project. The more people involved in accomplishing that task, the more complicated it becomes. To make it simpler to engage those people over the lifecycle of a project, Clarizen today announced it has integrated its project management application delivered as a service with the Slack collaboration service.

Yoav Boaz, vice president of product for Clarizen, says rather than trying to get people to log into a project management application, it’s simpler to bring the management of the project to an online place where users already collaborate with each other via a Clarizen Workbot that has been added to the summer 2017 release of the company’s project management application service released today.

“We think the system should meet people where they are,” says Boaz.

Other new capabilities included in the summer release include a financial planning module as well as a library of best practices for managing different types of projects.

Further on, Boaz says, Clarizen will take a similar approach to integrating its project management application service with other collaboration platforms.

Project managers may not be universally loved. But it’s hard to imagine anything worthwhile being accomplished with them. The secret to their success, however, is to make the actual management of any given project as invisible as possible to those on which the success of the project ultimately depends.
