How many times it happened that you had a call back from the team member whom you sent a mail for details?Or you call up your boss to clarify what exactly she is asking for.
Well ,I must say that for a team working in remote locations it is always difficult to understand the priorities.
What a PM can do to illuminate the team members?
- Make your priorities straight. Sending each time high priority alerts can confuse the team and lower the possible success of activities.
- Irrespective of circumstances elaborate “Why” you want this. The team knows “What” to do and “How” to do it…What you have to do is to make them understand “Why” they are doing this.
Pls don’t forget to share your experiences.
