Simple task analysis
The assignment was to outline the steps necessary to get a room painted in an apartment I share with roommates.
Step 1 — Devise an action plan.
Because there are multiple stakeholders that must be considered before the project can take place (Landlord, Roommates), the plan would include information I needed to have (cost estimates, mutual benefits) to get everybody onboard.
Step 2 — Convince the Landlord to pay.
Convincing the landlord is the first action step. Getting the landlord to agree to pay would make convincing my roommates to help much easier.
Step 3 — Get Roommates on board.
Approach roommates with the idea, when they are most agreeable.
Step 4 — Agree on the project specs and identify roles for each roommate.
Work together with roommates to decide on the look we want, and assign roles based on skills.
Step 5 — Collect necessary materials.
Go to store and buy materials for project
Step 6 — Prepare the room
Move furniture, tape edges, and place tarp.
Step 7 — Paint the room
Step 8 — Celebrate teamwork
Have a party, because no project is complete until we have toasted to a job well done!
