Create detailed action plans for all your projects
Identify your project’s overall purpose and desired result.
When understood by everyone involved, these two things will appropriately guide every decision made.
Identify correct courses of action.
Consider each team member’s capacity for tasks, other resources or support, etc., when determining the next course of action.
Delegate the planning process down the chain as much as possible.
Getting everyone involved in the process is essential to it running smoothly. It also allows you to think critically about plans from a big-picture view.
Communicate with your juniors and seniors frequently.
While junior leaders will be in charge of developing and executing plans of action, you’ll still need to check in every now and then. This is to ensure things are going as they should be and build a stronger relationship with your juniors so that they fully understand what they need to do and why they need to do it. You should also check in with senior leaders every now and then for the same purpose.
Brief your team about the project.
Make sure your briefing is clear, so everyone understands the project’s purpose, desired result, and their own role.
Debrief your team after the project is completed.
This will enable you to analyze lessons learned and implement them in future projects.
