Messenger is probably the most used application by students to communicate easily. Messenger, owned by Meta, is probably the most user-friendly and ergonomic application. What can we really say about Messenger, except that it has very few flaws and a lot of quality!
What is the principle of Messenger? “Facebook Messenger is an application launched by the social network, available for iOS, Android and Windows Phone, which allows its users to chat with their Facebook contacts. An extension of the social network’s message conversations also on mobile.” A key advantage of messenger and its main quality is the fact that messenger is owned by Facebook and Facebook is the social network with the most members, which makes it possible to talk to many people very easily.
Introduced at Toyota in the 1950s, the Kanban method aimed to improve production based on just-in-time and scalable processes.
Today, it is both a project management method and a tool, guided by two principles: visual and real-time. For this, teams work with tables and post-it notes, called labels. This methodology provides for a production system based on demand rather than supply.
The customer orders, the supplier produces to meet his demand. It avoids overproduction and therefore unsold products, limits storage costs, enables processes to be improved as and when necessary and allows a product defect to be quickly corrected or a problem in the production chain to be resolved. On the other hand, this method is not suitable in sectors where orders vary a lot (strong seasonality for example) since no stock can respond instantly to demand.
Today, the Kanban method is used in companies to enable better management of tasks between team members. It allows both a more Agile organisation and an empowerment of the work. The Agile method can take many forms, the two most common being Scrum and Kanban. The whole operation is based on tags, which are intended to optimise production and collaboration between teams. A label (Kanban, in Japanese) is created as soon as an order is placed.
It indicates a task to be carried out (a feature to be developed on a back office for example). The tasks are divided into a table according to their status and can be moved from one column to another as the process progresses: for example, under consideration, to be done, in progress, done. This way, each team member knows what he or she has to do and where the others’ work stands.
In addition to improving communication, this post-it technique provides a clear overview of the entire production chain and the progress of tasks, making it easy to spot blockages and emergencies.
PRINCE2 (Projects in Controlled Environments) is a structured project management method and certification programme for practitioners. PRINCE2 emphasises the division of projects into manageable and controllable stages. It is adopted in many countries around the world, including the UK, Western European countries and Australia.
PRINCE2 training is available in many languages. PRINCE2 was developed as a British government standard for information systems projects. In July 2013, ownership of the rights to PRINCE2 was transferred from HM Cabinet Office to AXELOS Ltd, a joint venture of the Cabinet Office and Capita, with 49% and 51% ownership respectively.
PRINCE2 helps to deliver projects of any size or complexity. It is therefore a process-oriented project management method. The structure of the project approach proposed by Prince2 is an excellent training and initiation tool for rational project management.
The formalism makes it possible to define a common logic and vocabulary to facilitate exchanges; this is also the advantage of using a standard method.
Let us also note the continuous learning orientation. Exams and certifications are administered by APM-Group worldwide.
