Make time for what’s important


On our projects, it is really important to make sure that we are spending our time on activities that drive value. Often our teams get caught up in the activity of the moment and forget to take care of those activities which could be considered “investments in time” – that is, spend some time up front to save time later. Some of these investments could include creating plans, looking at upcoming activities to ensure they are ready to start on time, and building strong relationships with stakeholders. I have seen many projects that don’t spend the time investing in things like project plans only to spin and then, ironically, say that they don’t have time to maintain these plans (which is part of the perpetuation of chaos).

Too busy for what is important?

We should all continue to challenge ourselves to make sure that we are spending time on what is important on our projects..and making sure that our teams are doing the same.
