积极主动的ly managing projects 和 programs is crucial to the overall success of your initiatives. 通过行之有效的方法, 你可以追踪, 理解, 和 further adapt to the models you have put in place. Here are 6 steps to start proactively managing your programs today:
Track, Underst和 和 Manage 项目 Risks 之前 Squeak开始
This is proactive project management. One does not need a week-long course in project risk management to identify 和 plan mitigation for project risks. 抓住威胁的号角, 确定你是否可以避免它们, plan for mitigation/remediation if you cannot. If you wait for a squeaky wheel your risk has already become an issue. Use a Risk Log to keep yourself organized.
Provide Regular Status Updates, Conduct Peer Reviews, 和 Engage in Milestone Checkpoints
It is key that you – 和 your key project constituents – 理解 the health of your initiative. Tracking status that is forward-looking is an excellent proactive practice that helps you 和 your stakeholders. Peer reviews ensure that your blinders come off 和 you are made aware of alternatives, issues lurking around the corner, 或者在你的专业领域之外. Engaging sponsors in milestone checkpoints ensures that they are up to date on where you are at 和 are aligned on what it will take to move forward.
Assess a Holistic Portfolio of 业务 Initiatives 和 Prioritize the List Across User Groups
If you examine your portfolio in segments or as projects come in one by one, you may be setting yourself up for unnecessary project stops 和 starts. And, if leaders try to commit to delivering all initiatives that are labeled 紧急的, the organization may sub-optimize the assignment of scarce resources. Leverage a whole-portfolio assessment method that can objectively provide your decision leaders with appropriate information to prioritize.
Flexibly Adhere to an Established Governance Model That Ensures Phase Deliverables are Complete
项目 life cycles vary 和 depend on the type of project. Establish a framework 和 leverage it accordingly for the type of project you are doing. Do not ab和on your framework 和 miss key h和-offs, decision points, or phase gates. Flexibly applying your rigorous model will proactively enable you to meet the needs of each project.
Tell your stakeholders what you are going to do. 推动对齐. 对航向修正持开放态度. 分享消息，都是好事 和 坏. Keep the appropriate people up to date. 那就是积极主动.
If you keep the worrisome things in the shadows, 然后转向问题, your sponsors 和 key stakeholders may not appreciate your management by damage control approach.
Stay on top of action items 和 issues. Know when each was raised, by whom, 和 by when they should be completed or resolved. Losing track of these key data points may have you back on your heels when someone comes to seek clarification. Stay out of crisis management mode 和 be forthright by recognizing issues 和 steps that may not have been in your original plan. Manage them effectively 和 you can be your project’s hero.
In conclusion, this is not an exhaustive list of proactive ways to manage your projects. However, this list is a good place to start if you are feeling lost.
