As mentioned in What Every Manager Needs to Know About Project Management – Part 1 as part of their work, Supervisors and Managers are often asked to manage or participate on a project in addition to their regular duties.  The ability to successfully manage these projects is often a key component of being a successful Supervisor or Manager, and often a criterion for further advancement.  Yet, because they are non routine events, successfully managing projects require different skills than Supervisors and Managers use in their day-to-day work.  Consequently, if you’re a Supervisor or Manager, or hoping to become one, being able to understand and use basic project management skills is one of the most important skill sets you need to develop.

One of the first skills you need to develop is to understand the difference between projects that fail, and those that work. Armed with this type of understanding, you can take steps from the start to make sure that your project plan includes the items needed to avoid some of these common reasons for failure, and contains those needed for success.

COMMON REASONS FOR PROJECT FAILURE

Projects that fail, often fail for some common reasons.  Among these are:

  • Poorly Defined Project Requirements:

– Example: A new computer system implementation that failed to include the needed testing before going “live”.

– Example: A new computer system implementation that left out a plan to adequately train new users.

  • Poor Task Analysis:

    – Example: An office move that left out important steps.

  • Overlooked reaction from people impacted by the project:

    – Example: A plan for a new road that didn’t plan sufficiently for negative community resistance and boycott.

  • Poor Scheduling:

    – Example: A project plan for implementing an initiative that called for heavy involvement from staff during peak normal workloads.

  • Lack of understanding or agreement by project team members of their responsibilities

    – Example: A critical task isn’t done because one of the project team members didn’t realize they were responsible for it.

  • Lack of Coordination with other Groups/Departments. 

    – Example:  The failure to include the impact of a new computer system on another system that uses the same data.

  • Missed Deadline

    – Example: The failure to hold timely project reviews to monitor the project’s status, and take corrective action when necessary.

PROJECTS THAT WORK

On the other hand, successful projects are usually completely the opposite of projects that fail.  They usually have the following traits:

  • A clearly defined purpose and scope.
  • Clearly defined objectives that can be measured to determine if the project is a success.
  • Deliverables that are clearly stated and agreed upon.
  • Buy-in by Key Stakeholders on the need for the project.
  • Identified Coordination requirements both within the project team and with other affected groups.

  • Clearly defined critical success factors.
  • A project plan and schedule that includes all the needed work tasks and deadlines.
  • A budget that reflects all the needed costs to successfully complete the project.
  • Sufficient status monitoring that measures progress against the schedule, and identifies any needed corrective actions.

SO HOW DO I LEARN THESE SKILLS?

Because being able to manage projects successfully is such an important skill, KAW Consulting developed “PROJECT MANAGEMENT FOR MANAGERS AND SUPERVISORS”, an electronic handbook that will help you learn these vital skills. You’ll learn how to:

  • Define the project’s scope, objectives, deliverables, critical success factors, resource needs, and collaboration requirements.

  • Break the work down into its major work blocks and tasks.
  • Develop an easy to use project schedule.
  • Monitor the project’s status and what to do if it’s off course.

These basic skills are critical regardless of how you plan to manage your project—using project management software or tools you develop yourself. They focus on the critical steps you need to take before you enter data into the project management tools you use.

Unlike most books on project management that are complicated and hard to understand,  “PROJECT MANAGEMENT FOR MANAGERS AND SUPERVISORS ” is exactly the opposite. It’s written in easy to understand language that walks you through the process of managing a project step by step, helping you think of the key ingredients to make your project successful, and avoid the common problems that crop up in unsuccessful ones.  We’ve even included sample forms you can easily adapt to fit your own project when defining the project’s key ingredients and developing the schedule and budget.

To help you understand what you’ll learn in these handbooks, here’s a list of some of the major skills that they cover.

Designing and Running Better Meetings

Meetings are a vital part of a Managers or Supervisors day.  Yet, many seem to fail.  In fact, a major survey revealed that 70% of employees feel the meetings they attend are a waste of time.  Consequently it’s important that as a Manager or Supervisor understand:

  • What makes meetings succeed, and why many fail.
  • The crucial roles that need to be filled in each meeting.
  • How to use 8 basic steps to design an Effective Meeting.
  • How to use some basic tips for Running an Effective Meeting.
  • How to deal with common problems that can derail a meeting such as:

–    Stares and Silence

–    Negative Remarks

–    Separate Agendas

–    One person trying to dominate the discussion

Holding Effective Team Discussions

Look at the types of discussions that Managers and Supervisors hold with their teams and you’ll find they often fall into 5 areas.  Consequently, Managers and Supervisors need to be able to effectively hold discussions with their teams to:

  • Brainstorm ideas
  • Solve Problems
  • Make Decisions
  • Plan Tasks
  • Set Goals

Delegating Work Successfully

Not only do Managers and Supervisors have to manage larger staffs, they’re also expected to make sure that their staffs are more and more productive.  This means of course that the Managers and Supervisors are skilled at the art of delegating work.  Skills in this area include:

  • Identifying what tasks to delegate.
  • Identifying the right people to delegate to.
  • Identifying the level of delegation that the Manager is comfortable with.
  • Determining what the person doing the task needs, so they can deliver the results the Manager/Supervisor expects.

  • Conducting the needed follow-up to stay on top of the person’s progress.

Coaching Employees

One of the implications of managing larger staffs is that individual staff members are going to need to be increasingly self managed.  Consequently, it’s vital that Managers and Supervisors know how to provide each staff member with effective coaching to help them be as productive as possible.  To coach effectively, a Manager/Supervisor needs to be able to:

  • Establish the groundwork to have an effective coaching relationship with their employees.

  • Determine expected performance levels for their employees’ major tasks and responsibilities.

  • Provide their employees with the needed training.

  • Analyze their employees’ current level of performance against expected levels, and identify areas needing improvement.

  • Hold an effective coaching discussion to provide employees with feedback on how they are doing, and develop plans for making needed improvements.

Project Management

As part of their work, Supervisors and Managers are often asked to manage or participate on a project in addition to their regular duties. Yet, because they are non routine events, successfully managing projects require different skills than Supervisors and Managers use in their day-to-day work. These skills include the ability to:

  • Define the project’s scope, objectives, deliverables, critical success factors, resource needs, and collaboration requirements.

  • Break the work down into its major work blocks and tasks.
  • Develop an easy to use project schedule.
  • Monitor the project’s status and what to do if it’s off course.

These basic skills are critical regardless of how the project is managed–whether using project management software or tools the Supervisor or Manager develops themselves. They focus on the critical steps before entering data into project management tools.

Time Management

Of course to be able to apply any of these skills and meet the heavy demands being placed on them, Managers and Supervisors need to become good managers of their time.  To do so, they need to become adept at:

  • Analyzing their job and identifying what to focus on to achieve both what’s expected and their own personal goals.

  • Developing an ideal picture of how to allocate their time between their various activities.

  • Analyzing how they’re currently spending their time and identifying the gaps from their ideal picture.

  • Developing weekly and daily schedules so they focus their time on the activities needed to achieve their goals.

  • Dealing with time management challenges such as unexpected interruptions, non critical phone calls, high volumes of e-mail, and unproductive meetings.

Leading Effectively

To lead effectively, it’s important that Mangers and Supervisors understand and use key leadership skills so they can focus their attention on doing the things necessary to succeed, and keep from overlooking some of the common reasons for failure.

Leadership efforts that succeed usually contain 8 key elements.  These are:

  • Being proactive and willing to act.
  • Setting and communicating a clear vision and direction.
  • Establishing and maintaining credibility with the people you’re trying to lead.
  • Getting commitment.
  • Setting the example.
  • Empowering others to do what needs to be done.
  • Confronting and overcoming barriers and obstacles.
  • Managing accomplishment of day-to-day efforts.

About “Meetings That Work”

People spend a lot of time at work in meetings. And according to surveys, 70% of employees feel that the meetings they attend aren’t productive—in short a waste of time.

If you’re one of the majority that feels this way, this comes as no surprise. You know the feelings of frustration all too well. As well as the financial cost. If 4 people each earning $40,000 a year attend a 2 hour meeting that goes nowhere, that’s a cost of $152 of wasted time just for that meeting. Not to mention the incidental costs such as travel. Take those costs and multiply by the number of meetings you feel are a waste of time over a year and you are getting some real money. In this day and age when organizations are facing enormous budget constraints, and are looking hard at all their cost elements, improving meeting quality jumps out as a “no brainer”.

Because holding better meetings is so important, KAW Consulting developed “Meetings That Work”, an electronic handbook that shows you step by step how to design and run effective meetings. Written in a clear, easy to use format you’ll learn:

  • What makes meetings succeed, and why many fail
  • The crucial roles that need to be filled in each meeting
  • The 8 Steps for designing Effective Meetings
  • Tips for Running an Effective Meeting
  • How to deal with potential problems you may encounter such as:
    • Stares and Silence
    • Negative Remarks
    • Separate Agendas
    • One person trying to dominate the discussion
  • How to use effective group discussion processes to:
    • Generate Ideas by Brainstorming
    • Solve Problems
    • Make Better Decisions
    • Plan Tasks
    • Set Goals

ABOUT “COACHING SKILLS”
One of the most important tasks for Managers and Supervisors is coaching their employees. Good Coaching:

  • Helps employees understand what they should be doing and how.

  • Provides employees with important information on whether they are performing up to expectation and if not, how far off the mark they are.

  • Helps employees develop and enhance new skills needed for future positions.

Yet as important as it is, for many Managers and Supervisors, it’s also one of the most dreaded.  Managers and Supervisors often worry that their employees will react negatively to a coaching discussion.  Without the proper ground work employees may feel caught off guard, and indeed react negatively to what they consider as unwarranted criticism.

Because effective coaching is so important, KAW Consulting developed “Coaching Skills for Managers and Supervisors”, an electronic handbook that helps you learn the skills you’ll need to become an effective coach.  Written in a clear, easy to use format you’ll learn how to:

  • Establish the groundwork to have an effective coaching relationship with your employees.
  • Determine expected performance levels for your employees’ major tasks and responsibilities.
  • Provide your employees with the needed training.
  • Analyze your employees’ current level of performance against expected levels, and identify areas needing improvement.

  • Hold an effective coaching discussion to provide employees with feedback on how they are doing, and develop plans for making needed improvements.

Designed specifically for e-book users, this version of “COACHING SKILLS FOR MANAGERS AND SUPERVISORS” is something you’ll want to keep on hand to refer to whenever you need to coach an employee.
