How to get Everyone on the Same Page
Scheduling and executing a project can be a mess. Whiteboards and walls filled with project progress updates, crew assignments, and vehicle locations. Papers shuffled from one office to the next in the hopes that they make it down the hall fast enough to notify the field supervisor of the new schedule before they leave the jobsite at the end of the day.
Making sure everyone has the most up-to-date information before the fleet leaves the next morning, or even in the next minute, can take countless emails, phone calls, and text messages. So how do you manage it all? How do you ensure everyone is seeing the same information at the same time?
We have seen a lot of companies struggle with these very questions. Over time, our specialists have developed some key questions for you and your team to answer when evaluating your schedule management plan.
- What tools do you have to create your schedule?
- Who will be in charge of creating and approving the schedule?
- What tools do you have to distribute your schedule?
- Who will be in charge of distributing the schedule?
- How will you manage schedule changes that occur one week, one day, and one hour before work is supposed to be performed?
