Handling several projects at once means more than dealing with just multiple schedules; it involves multiple risks, multiple stakeholders, and multiple functional managers who allocate resources. The key to managing multiple projects expertly is to recognize priorities and delegate wisely – not an easy feat in today’s complex environment. To do that successfully, you need to understand what makes up your workload, as well as an understanding of how risk, human resources, and schedules must be integrated.
Successful people set themselves goals and objectives. They know what they need to do, how they need to do it and have a plan to help them achieve it. How you plan and prioritize your day are two of the key skills needed to be successful and add value to your organization. Time is one of our most valuable resources yet we don’t always manage it as effectively as we could. This can lead to a stressful working environment which will prevent you from being successful and achieving your goals.
