Lucky me, ‘productivity guru’ Scott Belsky, founder of Behance Network, gave me a personal demo of their recently launched new tool called Action Method.
Action Method helps you manage your (life) projects with an emphasis on action. The application not only allows you to organize and delegate action steps but also enables ongoing conversations across all of your projects with anyone that works with you. And with Action Method you can keep all relevant communications (shared documents, solutions to problems, feedback, decisions) in one place.
The “Nag” and “Appreciate” feature made me chuckle: If you need to send a message to your co-worker about finally getting you that document you’ve been waiting for, you can send him a 140 characters ‘Nag’ system alert. And the ‘statistics’ feature will make many studio managers happy; with a click of a button you see what’s been done (or not).
Hat tip off to the Behance team. Action Method is a refreshing new approach to productivity, featuring a clean, intuitive user interface. I am impressed! And knowing this is just the start, I am curious to see the improvements Scott and his team will make over the coming months.
Take the Action Method Tour!
This looks really nice! I love Things, though…

Sweet tool. At the moment I’m just constantly adding stuff to remember the milk. Ironicly adding this link too:P

But obviously you can only use it on their website and there is no chance to download the product and install it within the intranet of your company.
And I don’t want to see company documents being stored outside of our own servers …

Scott Belsky had us test AMO at Undercurrent when they first released their Alpha a few months back. This tool kick the shit out of basecamp and the udpates they’ve made on it since they first released it have been incredibly helpful.
It will keep getting better.

I just started using this and it’s already a major improvement in accessibility over the [countless] other productivity apps I’ve tried and have. Still testing the waters, but so far me like…
