We all wonder in vain why some projects succeed while others fail. Fortunately, some answers might explain the steps you miss leading to such failure.
- Timelines: Don’t forget to set the right time you need to accomplish every project, i.e. not too little time and not too much time, or else, you will be either defeated or consuming time. Make a plan for the required steps and stay assured that you will be capable of giving your project the perfect time it needs.
- Teamwork: Since no projects can be done by one person, an effective team should be assigned for it. The team must be aware of the subject, objectives and expectations. Work on sending detailed plans for the team before the meeting, and end every meeting with assigned tasks for each member.
- Meetings: It is not enough to assign the tasks. You should follow the flow of work on a regular basis. Consequently, you will be able to tell who is falling behind and therefore find someone who can help out. Hold short weekly meetings to keep everyone up-to-date and never change the course of your set plans.
- Availability: In order to accomplish your project on time, all members should be available. You can be an example for them by answering all phone calls and replying to emails as soon as received. In that way, you won’t be losing track of what’s going on.
- Motivation: Make sure your team is aware of everything; whether good or bad. You will then encourage them to work harder and consider the project as their own. In a summary, be motivating.
It is true that leading multiple projects is not an easy task, yet it is also true that nothing is impossible.
