I’m one of those digital heads that always, no matter what my goal, thinks that “there’s an app for that.” I scoffed at those who brought notebooks to meetings, etc,. That’s why it took me years to realize that there’s simply no digital tool that can replace the flexibility of pen and paper. There’s just something about that freedom that’s a lot more efficient for me.
I’ve learned the hard way to take the planning seriously, and living by my Bubble mantra: creating is fast, changing is a bitch (ok, I just made that up, but it’s true).
What digital tools can help you with though, is collaboration. So if I’m presenting to a client, I mostly use Powerpoint/equivalents or LucidChart if it’s more complex. Whenever I’m bringing in more people to a project, I turn to a project management tool.
