There are times when everything you need to do, everything that needs to be done by everyone, is just plain obvious. It might take some time, but your team is smart and motivated and the steps are understood by all. Let’s crack on then.
There are times when someone says they’ll do something.
When tab A must be pushed into slot B or the glue will go off?
When the presentation will be ready? Be reviewed? Be updated?
When they’ll report on the fault? And fix it?
We need it!
With a when, everyone knows what’s expected. They can get on with something else and plan the when in their schedule. They even know when to chase or start worrying.
And when you’re doing the work, tell them when.
Skippy strategy: Ask them, by when? Tell them by when.
