Success in project management
These skills will set you apart from other project managers, and increase your employability and efficiency. This list will help you to review the seven steps that make project management successful in 2017 and how to make 2017 the best year of a career.
1. Time management techniques can help you plan your day
Time management skills are crucial for project managers because you have to manage a variety of tasks that require a quick turnaround. Your day can be organized to increase productivity and keep you organized. Project management software can help you plan your tasks and keep track of the work of your team.
A simple to-do list is a great way to organize your life if you’re not tech-savvy. Prioritize the most important tasks and place them at the top. A visual plan of your daily tasks will help you stay on track and keep you aware of your time.
2. Involve stakeholders in important project conversations
You will have many responsibilities, but don’t forget your clients.
Communication is key to keeping both parties updated on project progress, reducing scope creep, and being informed about any changes in requirements. Communication expectations may differ between clients. Therefore, it is important to set clear expectations at the beginning of your project.
Stakeholder uncertainty can be reduced by setting communication expectations early. It can also help you set boundaries for when you are available to talk about the project and when you are too busy to have a discussion (unless it is an emergency).
3. Communicate regularly with your team
“I think all the important tips could easily be summarized using a metaphor: You should be like an Orchestra director for your team, with a detailed score as score.” Jose Ignacio Bernaldo de Quiros Ochoa
Daily communication between the team helps to keep misunderstandings and unclear requirements under check. It is crucial to keep your team informed at all stages of the project.
