One of the key elements of success in business is productivity in the workplace. A productive team gets the job done and well, delivering maximum value for clients and end users. Achieving this begins with limiting the number of tasks at hand so that individual team members are not distracted or overwhelmed.
It is better to focus on a broad project instead of constantly transitioning between different projects. Break down the project into specific tasks and assign to team members based on their skill sets and areas of knowledge. Set clear objectives from the beginning and review each milestone as the team progresses.
Keep in mind that coordinating team members on a shared project does not always mean inhabiting the same physical space. Take advantage of technology to streamline processes, create structure, and support real-time collaboration. Applications such as Google Docs and Slack allow individual members to work on their assignments and collaborate simultaneously with others instantly.
