Project planning is an art form but there are some key steps that any business can follow to ensure that they get the best out of the team that they are working with and achieve the desired results for the overall project. Here are some of the steps that you can take.
Who – deciding who is going to be a part of the project not only means looking at those staff members that are going to be working on the tasks but those people who the project affects overall. This could involve bringing a number of stakeholders together for a discussion to set a strategy.
Goals – it is important that you set goals for your project. This will help you to make sure that it is kept on track and that you achieve your desired objective. You can also use them as a way to celebrate the team’s achievements and perhaps give Team Gifts like the ones from millercouk.com/collections/team-gifts as a thank you to the project team.
Schedule – after you have set your project goals you can add some timelines against each area and this will then form your project schedule. You can allocate the tasks out according to the timings and the specialities of the people in your team.
Now you are ready to present your project plan to the stakeholders that you identified in the first stage and get their feedback before you get the final project underway.
