There are instances in professional lives when complex projects take a toll on people’s mental and physical health. It might be a project that you have never worked on before, or it could be an incompetent team that has a complex project. Sometimes, complexity could arise from the involvement of too many team members and stakeholders in the project. When more people get involved in a project, there are more opinions, confusion, objectives, deliverables, and interpersonal concerns to solve. In her article for A Girl’s Guide to PM, Elizabeth Harrin talks about several skills that help manage complicated projects.
Adapt to the Change
Change is the only constant thing, and you should try to adapt to it. It is essential to acknowledge the project from a positive standpoint and attempt to learn as much as possible in the process. It is equally important to be flexible with your ideas and suggestions when working in a team. Strive to fit in and make yourself familiar with the fact that what seems to be a problem today might be your strength tomorrow.
Collaborate With the Team
Many project managers do not give equal attention to their team members, stakeholders, and clients. Many enterprises do not assist their sponsors or clients in contributing helpfully. If your company faces a similar problem, you should attempt to solve the situation by discussing crucial factors with clients and sponsors.
Additionally, you should establish bi-directional communication with your team members, stakeholders, and clients. It enables better performance and coordination among team members. Being a project manager, you should be a cheerleader and a strict coach, depending on the situation. Once you establish a rapport with your staff and get accustomed to the project, it will be easier to yield results.
