Sometimes IT decisions aren’t black and white. If you feel your project management quickly slipping into the grey area, it may be time to look at the do’s and don’ts of project team management. Dhan of ProjectManager.net has a few tips about what you should and shouldn’t be doing when it comes to tasks like project communication, project management software, resource planning assignment, and many others.
For instance, with project communication team members should always know if they are delivering on a tight schedule, but it’s not necessary to share all information with everyone all the time. Oversharing creates confusion. Make sure everyone has the information they need, but no unnecessary details.
With project management software, do attempt to use a single tool to simplify the process, but don’t push the team to adopt a tool they find difficult. Extensive training will only waste time. Do perform resource planning assignments meticulously and in a phased manner, but don’t squeeze resources just to cut costs. This will drag out your project, and ultimately cost you more.
You might still run into some grey areas, but a quick assessment of the do’s and don’ts can help you decide whether you want to leave it there, or view your project in full color.
