Omni Group to Partner With GTD Creator

The Omni Group has announced that it will team up with The David Allen Company--founded by David Allen, creator of the Getting Things Done productivity system--to support the GTD methodology in the software maker's OmniFocus task manager.

Omnifocus was inspired from the get-go by GTD: It was designed to make the steps of the GTD process--quickly "capturing" to-do items whenever they occur to you, triaging them to decide when and how they should be done, reviewing what's been done and what's left to do--easier. It also uses some GTD nomenclature--next actions, contexts and projects. You don't have to follow the GTD method to use OmniFocus--but OmniFocus does make it simpler to implement that method with your Mac and your iPhone.

The first result of the new partnership is a white paper entitled "OmniFocus, GTD, and You: Implementing the Getting Things Done Methodology with OmniFocus," which is available as a free PDF from the Omni Group and David Allen Company sites.
