Prioritize project tasks and clarify scope to focus on what's most important.

Defining your project scope and activity sequence will help your teams stay on track and achieve their goals and deadlines more effectively.

Effective project management depends on clear communication between teams and stakeholders, including a well-defined scope and sequence. By establishing clear lines of communication and keeping everyone informed and up-to-date on the project goals, tasks, and timeline, you can ensure that everyone is working towards a common vision and avoid misunderstandings or miscommunications that can hinder progress.

  • Reduce project risk with a clear set of priorities

  • Plan your capacity and resourcing appropriately

  • Prevent going beyond what was agree equating to scope creep

Use this play to resolve:

  • Team burnout and continued extensions of projects

  • Mismanaged expectations

  • Stakeholders are unhappy and unclear as to when things are being delivered

  • Confusion as to what is being delivered
