This month’s Quick Question is:
How do you manage date-specific deliverables vs. non-date specific deliverables?
Below is a summary of my answer to this. For the full response, watch the video.
- Set dates for non-date specific deliverables anyway, knowing that you have some leeway.
- Track them on the plan.
- Shift the dates as the deadlines come and go.
- If they aren’t on the plan, people won’t do them. Keep talking about them in meetings.
- At some point they’ll become critical.
