One week ago I asked the readers of tacticalprojectmanager.com: What do you want to become better at with regards to managing projects? As it turned out, many of you weren’t so happy with their level of self-organization.
Some of the comments I received:
“I struggle with organizing all the tasks”
“I sometimes fall behind on work”
“I want to be more organized with my work space”
“I’m looking for a way to make it easy to remember every detail so that my project succeeds”
The thing is, building up a system for managing project work takes time. And you need to know what a systematic approach looks like.
I could write about a lot of things on getting organized. But without knowing what systems you already have in place, this wouldn’t make much sense. So, I’m playing the ball back to you.
Here’s a 5 minute self-assessement
Go through the following list. Check which of these points you have already implemented. (You don’t have to send me your feedback although I always enjoy hearing from you.)Which of these statements applies to you?
I have a contact list for my project team (name, email, phone no.). No more than 2 clicks away or in printed form.
