Top Web Apps Designed to Smooth Your Design Workflow

Posted · Category: Best Collections

The web apps below in combination with these productivity tips will help you improve your workflow.  So here they are:

Clarify Expected Outcomes.  Just as can often be more than a single solution to an ambiguous requirement, expectations that are not put forth clearly can lead to unexpected or unintended results.

Encourage Open Communications. When team members are feel they cannot ask questions and discuss problems and concerns openly and it will lead to problems somewhere in the workflow.

Give Team Members Autonomy. This creates higher morale, and leads to better performance; even when the leash must be kept short.

Rethink Meetings – Structure meeting agendas to support the team effort.

Reserve Downtime. Use the tomato approach; intersperse time performing work with scheduled periods of downtime; everyone benefits when downtime is judiciously scheduled.

Hold to the following Team Management Principles, while practicing the productivity tips:

  • Use a scheduling system that blocks off the hours where the focus is on work, and the hours to be set aside for downtime.
  • Apprise your team members of your project’s overall progress. It keeps them accountable, and it keeps them in the loop.
  • Clearly communicate your overtime needs to your reports. This is true both when overtime will be expected, and when there will be no need for it.
  • Don’t micromanage. Assume your reports are experts at what they are supposed to be doing. Give them the resources they need, and let them get on with it.

Burn out is very real, and doesn’t help anyone, not you, not your company, not your mission.

What’s important is to identify the root cause(s) of your feelings. Is it that you’ve been pushing yourself too hard, or could it be that the work you’re doing no longer resonates with you?
