Repeating the hints learned in 2022 …..
for effective execution of a project or initiative
“There is no harm in repeating a good thing.”
– Plato, ancient Greek philosopher
The phrase “rinse, repeat” indicates “an action or process that needs to be repeated.” It is used to indicate that a certain pattern of steps and/or actions will, inevitably, occur again. If we can provide any takeaway from this year’s insights, it is that we are hopeful that you have learned some hints to use in the effective execution of projects and/or initiatives.
One value of identifying best practices is to be able to repeat those practices over and over again (i.e., “rinse, repeat”). As we reflect on our insights from this year, we hope you have learned – or been reminded of:
- Executing any project or initiative is not easy, as we discussed in our January insight with the story of the Father wanting to get to the Empire State Building’s observation deck.
- The need for clearly defined objectives in order to increase the probability of the success of any project.
- Focusing on priorities to manage the project’s successful execution.
- Understanding the roles and responsibilities of each project team member allows for a more effective project execution.
- The importance of managing dependencies throughout the life cycle of the project.
- Communicating, communicating, communicating – yes, the backbone of any project.
- Tips for keeping the project moving forward.
- The benefit of end user input.
- Managing scope create and changes throughout the project.
- Testing and its ability to increase the project’s success.
- Risks and project management – these can either positively or negatively impact a project – based on how they are managed.
Executing any project requires building repeatable processes using the insights we provided throughout this year. Aldridge Kerr can help your organization with executing any of your projects.
