You know when you need something done by.
You know how long it will take to get it done.
You know what people you want to be involved to get it done.
Do you know those peoples schedules?
It’s amazing how many projects miss deadlines because of not taking into considerations other peoples schedules. Too often, we wait to the last minute knowing we have just enough time to get something done but don’t take into consideration other people schedules. This means coworkers but also suppliers. If you don’t know when you can get a product by, it makes it much more difficult to schedule the work using those products.
Since it’s so difficult to control other peoples schedules, maybe we should stop waiting to the last minute and assume others are available
Just something to think about
Have a great day!
