Equip yourself with the necessary tools to work autonomously
- Make pragmatic decisions and organise yourself and your work more efficiently
When planning a schedule in your diary, how long should you allow for:
- a task which is familiar to you and would normally take one hour?
- a task which is unfamiliar to you and you estimate it may take two hours?
1 hour and 2 hours
1.5 hours and 3 hours
1 hour and 4 hours
1.5 hours and 5 hours
What tools could you use to make the organisation of your work more manageable?Careful, there are several correct answers.
Write everything down that relates to the task on a piece of paper, but find it is not visually accessible for you or the client.
Use a task file to design your workload so that you and your client can easily access a rational schedule over time.
Use an organisation task chart (WBS) to visually include human and technical resource management.
Create a to-do list using an on or off-line tool.
How should you get on top of a backlog of work?Careful, there are several correct answers.
By getting the interesting things done first, as you have more energy to devote to them, leaving the more difficult tasks.
Do the more mundane tasks a little at a time, when you have a spare moment.
Identify what kind of tasks are in the backlog, consider why they occurred and prioritise them for action.
Review how you might deal with problems differently in the future.
