New year, new life. Resolutions for 2012 are usually for personal reasons. But it is always good to include professional management in the list for better care of career.
Invariably, when the matter is to be intended to enhance the professional life, the desire is almost always a better salary, or more assignments that are more expressive.
Meet some points that can help in career.
1. Calculate the returns
It is important that your goals are aligned with company policies that work. Only then you will be able to entice the managers, their superiors and their staff. Compose a list of short and long term operations that are interesting in view of economic enterprise.
Operations that result in higher earnings and add value to the business of the corporation are the most frequently prescribed. In the description of the projects, try to show that the return on investment occurs even in the experience that project participants will gain by taking part in these initiatives.
Calculating the form of returns on investments most profoundly help to determine how new technology investments will be really useful in trying to take a leadership position in the segment.
Save time, money and skills of staff and customer satisfaction are arguments that help any project to live.
Of course money matters. And in times of global economy weakened, this rule is more important than anything. Knowing where to make cost-cutting is a difficult decision, especially when it is not known what are the critical points.
Learn transmitting at its head of the notion of exactly what you see and how you see the allocation of funds in critical projects. So you will be speaking their language. To give added strength to its exposure, to raise additional points of economic resources of the company without weakening the results much.
3. Reset the schedule
When looking at the plan, year ends and the next period begins, it is worth paying attention to the implementation of a schedule. If it was required to promote many changes or delays, it is time to reorganize it.
Find out what caused these discrepancies. Changes in the competitive environment, resource scarcity or utopian planning are the most common causes of this type of occurrence.
Tip: Create milestones. Something like a part-time back in racing cars. Realizing that something threatens the fulfillment of the deadline, seek reinforcements and reorganize the deadline for final delivery.
And never, ever even work without a good margin of time for delivery.
4. What resources do you have?
The general perception about the documentation of systems and processes is that it takes up precious space and that is tiring to read. Not infrequently this perception distorts the real value of documentation.
Managing a project is similar to mining a riverbed for the base metal. Each nugget is a bonded valuable information to the company and team members.
Review the documentation and learn about resource allocation, planning schedule, where the project went well and it failed. A series of questions is complemented by information on the cost of generation and execution of the project.
Expose these points in your next presentation and score points in the company, lighting the way for future initiatives.
Companies tend to evaluate the qualifications needed by their employees in time to predict their next steps, always focused on growth. Constantly gaining knowledge is the golden rule in this case, that “being good” is far from sufficient.
Remember that project management is the ability to connect things, and help to address challenges.
