1. Prioritize Based On Urgency And Importance
Critical to task management is to identify tasks around two vectors: urgency and importance. Obviously, we want to tackle important things before less important things, so it's critical to balance between important-urgent matters versus important-not-urgent matters. Regardless of how many important-urgent tasks teams have, it is always important to tackle the important-not-urgent tasks as well.

2. Encourage Communication, Feedback And Collaboration
I emphasize communication. Schedule daily stand-ups, weekly syncs and monthly alignment meetings. Provide ongoing feedback whether positive or negative. Don't wait for periodic performance reviews. Everyone should know where they stand and where to improve. Foster an engineering team culture of close collaboration to solve siloing and project delays and to keep an overall tight adherence to a roadmap.
