As the Company Director for BK Enterprises, part of Marg Kronfeld’s responsibilities include managing major projects for the company. This means being responsible for the project itself, the staff members and employees working on the project, and the budget for the project as well. Being a project manager is no easy task, but it’s essential for businesses to find the right professionals to do the job. Here are some common mistakes made during project management.
Poor communication between managers, employees, and even the clients. During the completion of a project, you need to have direct lines of communication to everyone involved so that you know where the project stands in the present moment. This means talking to the client as well because their interest in the completion of the project will be the highest. Don’t guess what stage a particular project is in; communication with your team members and everyone else involved so you know exactly what’s going on and when.
Not paying attention to the budget. Some project managers tend to get carried away with their vision for the completed product, but if it’s not within budget, the project will never get approval. Pay attention to the budge you’ve been allotted for the project, and keep track of what money gets spent where. Paying attention to the budget will allow you to see where money is needed, and where you don’t need as much.
Letting your management style relax. Another problem that project managers tend to have is that they trust their team too much. Don’t let your projects go unmanaged simply because you trust your employees to do their jobs. Even if that’s the case, you need to be making sure that people are doing what they need to be doing, and when. If for some reason the project doesn’t get finished, it will be you who’s responsible, not your employees.
