You will be more efficient and rational in making decisions about a single problem by working with the information required to solve this issue.
5. Add as much background information into your communications. Use unique identifiers of things you are working with commonly used in your organization and industry. You’ll have an easier time getting others to understand what you are trying to achieve & what your obstacles are. This technique will also make it easier for you to browse emails later.
6. Be a responsible employee, know people responsible for current steps & ask direct questions. If you are 1000% sure the project has a dedicated and determined person interested in project completion who keeps track of things for all of you, you may ignore this. Otherwise, you have to be that person and manage the project from your perspective.
7. Cooperate with others on every step. A way to ensure there’s at least someone who will remember what you were doing and why is to have a colleague working with you. When doing pair techniques, you have to argue decisions you both make.
8. Lose track of things you don’t need to know. There’s a thin line between things you must know and things you must be able to look up when working on a project. Find where that line lies, and stop trying to keep track of things outside your reach. Focus on the things you can be responsible for.
Being in control of a project isn’t an easy thing to do. But you can accomplish it if you meticulously follow the best Information Management techniques and organize your work. Recorder information is your best friend there.
