Workplace Management Routines (4/7): Utilize A Formal Project Manager Or Scheduling Tool

Use some form of formal project management or scheduling tool to help monitor a project’s progress (e.g. time design, time file, manage-pro, etc).  Additionally, if you have access to the Company’s system-wide calendar program, learn the best and proper way of using this tool and use it on a regular basis, especially with respect to project teams.

Share your calendar and schedule with your manager or mentor on a regular basis, soliciting recommendations on how you might be able too more effectively plan and monitor a project.

Write a Critique Goals 

Practice writing SMART goals (i.e. Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time Bound) for each of your future projects.  Critique your current project plans to ensure that existing goals meet these criteria.  Provide feedback and coaching to your subordinates and peers on their goals and plans.
