An essential component in every project manager’s and team leader’s duties is the art of optimizing work. You might be great at setting strategies, executing on the plan, and forcing your way toward the goal – but struggle with getting on the right side of people management. Basically, you have either a conscious approach to balance work and motivate team members – or you just let things roll and hope for the best. In many cases, it boils down to your approach to workload management.
In our latest eBook “Project Manager’s Guide to Getting Things Done: How to manage your team’s workload” we’re picking the brains of our experts to identify useful and actionable tips and best practices to effectively manage workloads, reduce stress and increase performance.
