How to manage team's workload?

Team workload

Does your team feel overworked and tired? Every team sometimes does. If you want to be a good leader, start proactively checking your team's workload. When you're assigning work make sure you know what they have on their plate. Here's a simple checklist on how to get started.

1. Prioritize tasks

Start by writing down all the tasks in your project. Determine which tasks are important and grade them by urgency. Include your team members in the process so that you don't miss any important tasks.

Breeze makes it easy to list out all the tasks. Use a project board or a simple list. Use to-dos for subtasks. Later, they'll all be in your team's workload.

Set deadlines

2. Distribute tasks

The next step is to distribute tasks and figure out how long they'll take. Include the person responsible for the task to get an accurate estimate. After that, you can add due dates and start dates. This helps you better plan for projects and ensure that the work is distributed evenly across your team.

3. Share the workload with your team

Get feedback from your team. Double check that everybody is comfortable with the tasks assigned to them. Start working and always be prepared to adjust the plan to meet real-world changes. Visualising the team's workload helps you instantly see if something is off or somebody is overloaded.

Breeze automatically makes the workload plan. Once you have added all the tasks, set due dates, and assign tasks to people you can just head over to the team workload page and see it. Drag and drop to change priorities or reassign tasks.
