The previous time management related post “Managing the Time of your Life” focused primarily on an individual’s own management of time resources.
Working with others adds another dimension – team time management. As challenging as it is to manage time when you operate alone it’s even harder when you work closely with others. If this applies to you, here is a simple “how-to” process to begin managing your time as a team:
- Make a list of everyone’s top five time wasters (using the technique outlined in Managing the Time of your Life).
- Analyze the list and identify the three most common problems.
- As a team, design a plan to address each, implement the plan, and meet again to check on progress made and discuss any needed refinements.
Once progress has been made with the first set of issues, repeat the process to identify and address another set of concerns.
