Little tip, no matter how much you try and how hard you want it, as a PM you should always avoid the constant badgering of your team or resources attached to your team, to deliver ‘product’.
it never works, when I was on the other side of the line writing code and being ‘the resource’ I often encountered tow types of PM, the ‘badgers (?)’ and the guy / girl who knew how to get the best from their team, the ‘badgers’ task where always at the bottom of the list, same is true now I am the guy.
- Trust your team
- Set up your communication lines and trust them
- Ask yourself who is this meeting benefiting, me or the project *before* you call it.
- And leave the guys alone..
*caveat this assumes you have a team of competent staff, if this is not the case adjust your communication lines and project protocols according ;)
