How Can Your Project Management Benefit From Visual Planning?
Think about all of the time you spend "seeing" in a day…
You start with the scenery on your way to work (or maybe just the endless line of traffic in front of you!).
When things start to get a little tense at the office, you close your eyes and picture a nice warm beach, with bright blue water. When you get home, you're on the edge of your seat over that mystery novel. Then, when it comes time to take out the trash before bed, that funny stray cat shows up and starts dancing for a few morsels of leftover chicken.
Since "seeing" plays such a big role in the rest of your day, why doesn't it play a bigger role in your project management?!
Thanks to visual planning, you can see which tasks are understaffed, which ones are in danger of missing their deadlines, and which of your employees may be stretched too thin. You won't have to comb through wordy reports. You won't have to go from office to office, asking everyone how things are going. All you'll have to do is take a look at your computer screen and see what's going on.
You can even color code things so that the quickest of glances will tell you everything you need to know!
And, as an added benefit, everyone else can see it, too! Visual planning software is easy to set up on your entire network, so all of your employees will know exactly what's going on. More importantly, they'll be able to see that you're looking out for them -- both in terms of time and responsibilities.
That’s a great way to motivate everyone to do their best!
