Firstly, make time – add it in to your project plan and ensure all the stakeholders are included in the input so that good work can be praised and not-so-good work can be analysed and refined. And secondly, it’s not a blame game – giving praise will automatically allow people to objectively review their own work and agree where improvements can be made. It takes a strong project manager to admit to their own mistakes but it will also encourage and engender a more open and honest project environment.

I found this article by Michelle LaBrosse which identifies a number of reasons why good project management skills can help a small business, focusing on the advantages of having a simple defined process, the reduction in costs and how to recognise and define projects. It’s a high level view but includes some interesting points to think about – and if you need any assistance with implementing any of the suggestions, give us a call at Gray Fulton.
