Multi-tasking between several assigned projects can lead to situations where project team members can’t spend enough on their prio 1 tasks. Obviously the best remedy is to assign enough time resources for a project. But in reality, lots of big and small tasks pile on. Urgent. Last minute. And your strategically important project gets sidelined.
The question is:
How do you allocate enough time to your prio 1 tasks? Some things that work for me:
- Schedule and block time in your calendar for important projects
- Start your work day with the important tasks
- Set yourself reminders
- Seek active collaboration with other project members
