Short details Nirvana has evolved into an excellent personal GTD and GTD solution, worth looking at.

Particularly nice is its ability to pause or schedule projects (and all tasks within them) and designate project steps as sequential or simultaneous. You can also star tasks to create an instant "must do today" list as taught in TRO Online training.
Asana connects your tasks and projects to anyone you want to work with. Use of workspaces to organize all the teams and collaborate with other people while keeping everything separate. All history and discussions for each task are kept together and updates you of the changes to the tasks and projects.
