Seven project management methods that will boost your efficiency

1. Setting Boundaries

This might be one of the most challenging skills a manager must do. On the one hand, a manager can grow their team and lead them toward achieving team goals. But on the other hand, restrictions and limitations are necessary to optimize time spent containing all managerial responsibilities properly.

2. Define clear goals

This is one of the most effective project management strategies since it can impact all project phases from start to finish. Managers should skip this theoretical conversation and invest time in setting a proper project plan. By doing so, project managers are not only leading a productive and calculated conversation with other team members. They are setting a structure for the project and actively taking steps to eliminate many typical time wasters that may otherwise occur down the line. This includes, most notably, the need for unnecessary rework at future project stages.

3. Delegation

Project managers have to delegate tasks effectively to team members as it is linked to the project’s success. When the work is commissioned efficiently, it enhances the project’s success rate and saves time and money for the company.

4. Prioritizing

It is about making the best use of time and resources. It’s essential when time is limited, and demands are seemingly unlimited. Furthermore, it helps you to allocate your time when it’s most needed and most wisely spent.

5. Scheduling everything

Learning how to build a schedule and effectively managing your time can save your company thousands of dollars as you move from one project to the next.

6. Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Automation

Many companies have already jumped on the train to the future and are integrating AI into project management. They are using automation to perform complex tasks from planning to visualization. As a result, well-founded decisions can be made even more reliably and quickly.

7. Project management tools

Every project manager requires tools to help them manage the project progress and track time. Jira is one of the most common tools used to manage projects and allows project managers to track progress, assign tasks, etc. Coupling Jira with advanced time-tracking and resource management apps gives project managers the extra edge they need to successfully manage their projects.

Which method is right for you?

Clear communication has taken its toll on project management, from setting boundaries to defining clear goals, delegating, prioritizing, and scheduling effectively. By following these methods and practicing those you feel most comfortable with, you will successfully lead your team to the finish line.
