Eat the Elephant
What does that mean exactly? Well, don’t....
• Push the project onto one person without providing detailed expectations – give instructions and review each step of the project regularly
• Set unrealistic expectations for completion – determine the timeline that makes sense by including key stakeholders in the planning process
• Take away resources to complete each part – payroll, time, people – it’s work, plan in advance to spend the resources
• Put too many pieces of the project in motion – there should be an order or process to follow.
Eat the elephant one bite at a time. It really is the only way.
