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!
