Boost Productivity and Revenue with Feng Office’s Advanced Task Manager

Task assignment and management can get as complex as a full bag of hooks mixed with 10,000 needles, you can just create a simple header for your task stating what should be accomplished or create a long document attached to it with every aspect and goal to be achieved. Both are ok and both are wrong… to the right or wrong people.

Task management is a mix of personal managerial preferences and company culture. We have seen new project managers who bring a different approach to the company that fails spectacularly and end up adopting the company’s ways instead of enforcing theirs, and that’s okay and wrong… or something in the middle.

 

There is not a one-way that is foolproof but there are a lot of ways that can lead to failure, it’s just a matter of adoption from your team and the people you are assigning the tasks to because what is important is the assignee and their approach to task management.

 

The hierarchy of tasks refers to the way one task is related to another and between them conforms to a project with every dimension related to it contained in the tasks themselves. Therefore, mastering this hierarchy can help you achieve efficiency and have a clear understanding of bottlenecks and roadblocks for you and your team. So, let’s dive into it.

 

A good hierarchy of tasks organizes tasks in a structured manner, allowing for better management and prioritization. Here’s an example of a hierarchical task structure:

 

  1. Project Title or Main Objective: This represents the overarching goal or project that you’re working on. It serves as the top-level category under which all related tasks are organized. This serves as a marker for the general allocation of resources.
  2. Major Task Categories: Underneath the main objective, break down the project into major task categories. These categories represent the different aspects or stages of the project. For example:
    1. Planning
    2. Production
    3. Sprint Releases
    4. Epics/Versions
  3. Subtasks within Each Category: Within each major task category, further break down the work into specific subtasks. These subtasks should be actionable and contribute directly to the completion of the major task. For instance:
    1. Planning
      1. Quoting
      2. Research
      3. Proposal
    2. Production:
      1. Timelines and critical route
      2. Resource allocation
      3. Costs and expenses
    3. Sprint releases:
      1. MVP Review
      2. Approval process
      3. Analysis
    4. Epic/Versions:
      1. Discoveries
      2. Evaluate outcomes
      3. Make adjustments
  4. Individual Tasks: Finally, each subtask may have individual tasks associated with it. These are the specific actions or steps needed to complete the subtask. For example:
    1. Conduct literature review:
      1. Search relevant databases
      2. Read and summarize articles
      3. Identify key findings
    2. Develop project timeline:
      1. Consult team members
      2. Determine task dependencies
      3. Set deadlines

Task Management done the right way!

Task management is a mix of personal managerial preferences and company culture. We have seen new project managers who bring a different approach to the company that fails spectacularly and end up adopting the company’s ways instead of enforcing theirs, and that’s okay and wrong… or something in the middle.
