Project Manager’s Guide to Getting Things Done

How to set goals, organize teamwork, and measure success

Step 1: Set the stage

A lack of clear direction is a common cause of project inefficiency. If you’re building a website or planning an event, for example, you need to visualize the end result and work out how you’re going to get there. Without tangible goals, people procrastinate or spend time on non-essential tasks.

Create a strategy based on the overall objectives and the project or initiative timeline. Answer the question: What path in the long term would enable you to reach your goals?
