Every market, industry, business entities, and smaller business units always come up with a plan of action that needs proper implementation. But there is always a gap between a plan and implementation process. It seems easier to form an over a review that a plan is easy to execute and the desirable results of the projects can be easily achieved. However, contingencies are a part of life that must be dealt with wisely to bare minimum loss. Firstly the project must be divided into 3 major plans i.e. operational, strategic and tactical plan. This will help project managers to easily achieve their targets separately. Also, this is useful when larger resources and finances are involved.
Following this division of plan here are some steps that would likely bridge the gap between planning and implementation.
Choose the right team:
Many times when everything seems to be sorted the people under you are not capable enough to match your pace. This will likely result in missing deadlines, less connectivity, and human errors while the project is being executed. To avoid this mishap, a project manager should opt for an experienced team that is aware of the nitty-gritty and can meet the demands.
Establish clear communication:
Communication, on the other hand, plays a huge role in successfully meeting the day to day tasks. When these tasks are summed up, they result in a huge milestone. If a project manager can establish clear communication between the team that’s the point where 40% of the project is achieved.
Monitor progress and performance:
It is important to adopt performance measure mechanisms for your daily tasks. These small progress reports are really important for your overall results. Also, they indicate how far you have reached and what needs to be done next. Plus they also play a huge role to evaluate separate tasks performed by each individual in a group.
It is not likely to happen what is already planned so must prepare yourself for the unseen. Being a professional there must always be a “Plan B” to execute at the time of emergency or an alternative that would likely replace and does not mar the growth of the project.
Celebrate achievements with your team:
It’s a matter of fact that your subordinates get motivated when you appreciate them on little things they do. Celebrating these achievements boost their confidence and are more likely to get committed to their job.
