1. Set Clear Expectations And Checkpoints
Strategic over-communication is key. Before teams start on a project, I like to make sure that everyone has a clear idea of deliverables, time lines and a measure of what success looks like. We also develop checkpoints along the way with our teams to figure out what is working and what is holding up progress. It’s vital to strike a balance between project management and employee independence.

2. Train Everyone On Time Management
One-on-one time management training will help employees get the most out of their personal work times, which will help smoothen workflow among teams. Much emphasis, especially for tech employees, should be placed on blocking extended periods of time to focus on one sole task without distractions and breaking up longer projects into smaller, easily digestible parts.
