One step forward, two steps ahead in schedule — Part 2

  1. Be flexible throughout the duration of the project. This will help address incoming changes as they occur, allowing time to adjust the project plan, and keep the team moving forward.
  2. Communicate with your team. Provide a scope of work and continue with informing all necessary changes that affect their work in a timely manner.
  3. Communicate with your client and stakeholders, and establish clear expectations and guidelines relating to deliverables and what the team will be doing.
  4. Document the progress to review with the team during project completion. This allows a review of what took place and allows feedback on what went well and what could be improved.
  5. Celebrate milestones that the team reaches to acknowledge contributions and offer encouragement.
  1. Going local — recognize who is on your team and the skills/resources they can provide.
  2. Conserve energy — ideate a workflow chart or draft a timeline to achieve project milestones through efficient and appropriate use of everyone’s time
  3. Longevity — have a flexible design process that can be adapted during the course of the same project
  4. Zero waste — in project management, zero waste could be aiming for less occurence of repeated corrections to assignments and less multiple versions/corrections of the same assignment. (Refer to Step 1)
