How to manage team's workload?

Team workload

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 the steps you need to take. Then, group them according to priority and urgency. Make sure to include any team members in the discussion so that you don't leave out any tasks.

Breeze makes it easy to organize tasks. Use a project board or a simple list. Use to-dos for subtasks. Later, all of these will end up in your team's workload.

2. Assign tasks

The next step is to assign tasks to people, figure out how long these tasks will take, and make sure that the estimates are accurate. Doing this will help you plan for projects better. Plan ahead and make sure you have enough time to complete the project, and keep the project moving towards completion.

3. Share the workload with your team

Be clear about what needs to be done and make sure everybody is comfortable with the plan. Before starting work, sit down with your team and discuss the tasks assigned to them. Make sure they all agree to their tasks and try to anticipate whether anyone is struggling to complete their part of the plan. Visualize your work to make sure everybody is on track.

Breeze automatically makes the workload plan. Once you have added all the tasks, set due dates, and assigned 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.
