So do waste a ton of time trying to find the information you need? I’m sure you do. And what’s more, as someone who is managing other people, seeing your team try and spend hours trying to find information is incredibly painful. So the reality is, though, there’s not a one size fits all workflow management system. Whilst your UX and strategy team might like using Trello or Asana when it comes to your developers, well, invariably they’re going to want to use JIRA. So how do you manage this madness? How do you decide who wins? Well, there was actually a McKinsey report that noted that actually, most employees spend about eight hours a week just trying to find information.

So the good news is there is a way to fix this problem and that fix is a workflow management system. So if you’re interested in saving yourself time, saving your team time and budget, keep listening to today’s podcast. When we’re going to talk about creating and optimizing a workflow management system, thanks for tuning in. My name is Ben Aston. I’m a digital project manager and founder of thedigitalprojectmanager.com.

So tell us a bit about this story. How do you go from being a web developer to a project manager to a product guy and then founding your own company? Tell us a bit about that evolution.

Marc Boscher

Well, it took some years, I guess but started in the Dotcom bubble, and things moving pretty fast. Been pulled in technology up to the product. And I’ve been doing basically products for 20 years. And when you’re in product, you get this really cool thing where you observe problems all the time and you keep on saying someone should solve this, someone should solve this, and you never really get to it. But I kept the list and basically, Unito came out of one of those problems that I observe all the time.
