Being a business owner, a project manager, or a department head is both rewarding and challenging. It is rewarding because you wake up every day to new opportunities for improving lives, particularly your employees’ and clients’ lives. But then that can be a lot of weight to carry on your shoulders. No matter how many managerial courses you take or how many supervisory tools you utilize, leading people and supervising top-level projects will always present new challenges every morning.
Is it possible, then, to overcome these daily challenges and become the supervisor everyone loves and admires?
The short answer is…
‘Time is money.’
We’ve heard that old, cliche adage a lot yet it’s still relevant. Whether you’re an executive, a manager, or a team member, knowing where your hours are going is extremely important so that you can gain control of what you achieve during the day.
When it comes to business, time has always represented the key to competitive advantage. It’s the key to productivity and a healthy workflow. Therefore, it’s crucial to take extra efforts to ensure that you manage, control, and get more from it.
But, in such a fast-paced and changing world, who has time for…

However, the Golden Rule has its limitations. It may not be as universal as we might have grown up thinking it is. It may not actually be the best guide when it comes to navigating our relationships.
As the working world moves from the office to home, many businesses are finding they have little choice but to become more flexible in their approach. Organizations that are coming out ahead during the health crisis are those that are introducing flexibility; flexibility in terms of workspaces, working hours, and expectations. But let’s be honest. It hasn’t always been smooth sailing.
There are definitely a lot of things that can go wrong in the flexible workspace, and some businesses have found this out the hard way. But you don’t have to. Instead, you can learn to avoid chaos.
Here’s something we can both agree on:
Management is hard, and project managers are extremely busy people.
Creating and updating schedules, participating in multiple calls, interacting with project team members, talking to vendors, attending endless online and real-life meetings — it’s just the tip of the iceberg we see when speaking about a project manager’s work.
Such busyness goes hand-in-hand with heavy responsibility. Other stakeholders have huge expectations from project managers; their success depends on their organizational skills, team management, and resources; they have to deal with conflicts and constraints.
Branding has a significant impact on how the intended audience receives your project. Go off-brand? Prepare to alienate loyal customers, but stay on brand? Build momentum and perceived value instantly with your loyal audience and tap into new audience members as you go.
It’s easy to see why some project managers might think branding has no impact on their project delivery, but they’d be wrong. Branding isn’t just about branded colors, logos, fonts and tone of voice. …
Performance management isn’t dead. The old way of thinking about it is. — Anita Bowness
Performance Management and Performance Management Cycle are two terms that are generally associated with ambitious organizations; the ones that seek constant improvement in their team’s performance.
I’d like to share an anecdote about the same that I managed to experience while working here at ProofHub. The conversation took place between Aaron, one of the team leads at ProofHub, and me.
“Hey Sandy, I can see the team performing really well, but they have hit a roadblock. I have not been able to witness any performance…

What Is Content Marketing Strategy
The market for startups is growing drastically, so is its failure rate. In research, nine out of every ten startups are shut down due to multiple reasons. These rising entrepreneurs either fail in creating a space for their product in the market or die with premature scaling. The fundamental difference you will find in a startup and an established corporate is its “Structure.” Every component in a corporate is highly organized, and people are aware of their role, whereas a startup fails to maintain an efficient working environment, which eventually creates chaos.
This is where Agile comes to the rescue.
