Each project requires proper task allocation - in other words all tasks within team work should be assigned to appropriate specialists and the whole project structure should be organized in the way which is the most convenient for team progress tracking. Traditional approach to project management requires that team manager should create a paper scheme which describes work structure, expounds collaboration rules and can be used for work performance tracking. First of all team manager should make the work break-down structure, write down team members and their roles, create "milestones" for all tasks and assign tasks to team members according to their roles. Task Tree is the traditional instrument which represents task hierarchy and shows who is assigned to execute certain tasks. Then team manager can use Task Tree to mark out done tasks or competed milestones according to employees' reports.
