Project management requires fixing problems with a project immediately, treating colleagues and employees with respect, delegating tasks, and not using paperwork as an excuse. Lead by example as a project manager using tips from a marketing and business management professor in this free video on business.
Hi, my name's Mark, and we're going to look at project management tips. First of all, if a problem occurs during the initiation of the scheme of the project, fix it immediately. Don't look at somebody to blame, or the circumstances to blame. Just get on with it, yourself. Second of all, treat your colleagues and your employees and the people you delegate tasks with, with finesse and responsibility, and with respect. Ultimately, they are individuals, and they deserve to be treated fairly. Don't treat them like idiots, because you'll get the least out of them. Delegate your tasks to your employees equally and fairly, and treat them well. Don't...fourthly, don't use paperwork as an excuse for not doing something, or for being behind schedule. Excuses, in this particular business, are not useful. So make sure every step is taken count, is taken care of. And finally, and most importantly, is lead by example. If, obviously, you are working the way through the list and you are actively involved, then your staff, the people you delegate your tasks to, will take you far more seriously and give you a lot more respect. As a project manager, really, you make sure that you are monitoring all of the tasks, and make sure that you are prioritizing all of the tasks that you have done, that you still have to do. It's very, very important that you're planning for the bigger picture of things, and that you are taking care of the daily requirements as well as, obviously, what's going on in the bigger scheme of things. Keep your employees happy. And, of course, make sure that the client's happy with the task that is being done on their behalf.
