Building trustworthy timelines

How Long Will It Really Take?

Colleagues need to believe and rely upon each other.

Team members work more effectively — alone and in collaboration with colleagues — if they believe the data and timelines for performance are reliable.

Establish flexible formats and timelines, with a policy to revisit schedules. Some processes require flexible timelines and space for revisiting results (or buffering for delays).

Creating a structured timeframe that includes room for delays and unexpected timing requirements, paired with established and communicable milestones, helps all stakeholders in a process.

And that’s smart business!
