Tips for establishing great workflow management

Perfecting your team’s workflows takes some trial and error.

1. Decide how and when to communicate

To make sure everyone’s on the same page, set communication guidelines in advance, make the higher-level mission known to everyone, and encourage openness and feedback.

2. Streamline the things you do regularly

Think about all the places where you can save time on recurring work. Is there a way to automate any of your tasks?

3. Have an internal knowledge base

Make it easy for collaborators to access information and projects by creating a central database of resources.

4. Define responsibilities and expectations at the start

Be sure to answer these questions for any workflow: What are the exact deliverables? Who’s responsible for each piece of work? When is each task due?

5. Keep your workflow simple and make adjustments

Avoid creating an overly complicated workflow. To start, keep it simple and check in regularly to make any necessary adjustments.

6. Include goal-setting in your team’s workflow

Goal-setting helps team members understand how their work supports company objectives.
