Failing to plan is planning to fail. – Alan Lakein
Any team leader knows what he/she is getting in to know when he/she embarks upon the project journey. This means that the obvious jobs of a team leader have to be executed with diligence and amazing efficiency. He/she has to manifest the leadership qualities in all the right proportion, with a right balance in every aspect. He/she must be calm, understand and considerate. The leader should have the utmost passion for the work he/she does because that passion is automatically rubbed off on the employees. This gives the employees newfound impetus for working.
It is often said that ambitious people are hard-wired into being such a type of person that is an adept at solving any problem that comes in the way. That is how people actually rise to power and success and as mentioned earlier, the pathway to success is riddled with ability to management and problem solving and it is seen, more than often, that teams that have been successful on multiple occasions in the past have developed an uncanny sense of problem solving abilities and that continues to help them be even more successful in their later endeavours.
Being able to do a million jobs simultaneously is no doubt commendable, but the real talent lies in managing them well. Planning a job to be done in the near future can make people overlook certain scenarios or aspects of it, but while they are in the job, planning every step of the way makes them come across hundreds of hurdles and ways to and effort than avoiding the situation as a whole but has a better impact on your work in the long run.
Under circumstances of getting to know about a new problem, once you get to the roots of it, you remove it. Consequently, you reach a solution. Now when you have the solution at hand, you lay down the problem and the solution in black and white in your planning. So you bring in an amendment in the plan based on a real-life problem you faced in order for that problem to never interfere with your work or any other similar work done in the future. Now, that is good planning.
So it does not matter whether you are a project planner or the project manager, managerial skills always come in handy. You need to know the project inside out to be able to troubleshoot any problems. For a project planner, that is not an issue, because he/she made the blueprint of the project him/herself. So he/she probably knows the nooks and crannies of it. But when you are assigned to be the project manager, you need to be well versed with every little detail of the project to be able to study the problem arising from it well enough to solve it.
A plan chalked out should be simple, easily comprehensible and flexible. It is impossible to predict the problems beforehand with precision but having a basic visualization of the project ending gives you a rough idea as to where things might go wrong. But in any case, your mindset should not be hardwired into thinking rigidly. It should be flexible, realistic and negotiable. Only then can you manage the team well to make it work. So, before you start a project, plan well, think well and proceed with all the good intentions at heart.
