In Flat Classroom and with my students we use a Trello board which is a web app used for Agile development. This app makes sense for schools and for personalized learning projects like the Personal Project done by my computer students. I couldn't track all the little pieces without it. Scrum, Lean, Agile, KanBan - these are all terms for project management systems and I think that as educators implement projects, this is a great place to look to handle large complex tasks with teams of people in efficient ways. Meetings are often a waste of time and should be to do what you can ONLY do face to face.

This research posted on Educause's website seems to back up this assertion.

"Gartner predicts that by the end of 2012, agile development methods will be used on 80 percent of all software development projects. Project Management Institute’s research shows that agile project management tripled from December 2008 to May 2011, and can help decrease product defects, improve team productivity, and increase business value.

 Amy Edmondson, Associate Professor at the Harvard Business School, states that an organization must have a safe psychological environment so that learning behaviors become part of how we think, how we do our work, and how we interact with one another.  Without these behaviors at all levels of the organization, learning and improvement will come to a grinding halt, as it appears to have done in many organizations.
