Project Managers should spend their valuable time on their core responsibilities. Negotiating with vendors and customers. Dealing with tricky cases. Solving problems. Their days should not consist of just shuffling e-mails and files. Your time is precious, so do not waste it on repetitive tasks. Automate as much as possible. Here’s how:
Automation is a vast subject. There are many ways of approaching it. Established, measurable and repeatable processes do not only make your job easier. They are crucial to delivering consistent, repeatable services of high quality.
Many fear that automation will threaten their job. But by automating your workflow, you deliver faster and better services to your customers. That makes you more valuable to your company, especially as you manage more and more projects. Improving your tools and processes benefits everyone. It makes the customer happy, frees you from doing tedious work and improves your company’s performance. Every day spent working manually is a day lost. Start automating today.
