Stage 3: Plan Appropriately We’ve all heard the phrase “the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry.” Unfortunately, in many organizations, this cliché has become standard operating procedure—a critical failure that wastes time and money, not to mention jeopardizes project and organizational success. In fact, according to some sources, poor planning is the primary factor in more than 90% of project failures, and nearly two-thirds of organizations report having projects that fail to meet scheduled completion dates.

All managers need in order to effectively manage their team's work is to be able to answer these six questions: [caption id="attachment_8561" align="aligncenter" width="528"][]1 Managers need to be able to answer these six questions to effectively manage work.[/caption] No biggy, right? Easy-peasy. **Wrong. ** Unfortunately, most managers find it difficult to get the information they need in order to answer these questions realistically. And without the answers, it's hard for executives to justify resources, for managers to prioritize and plan efficiently, and for workers to be their most productive and creative. In reality, managers struggle to get the data they need because the... Read More
