Web Design Team-A Minute Matters For the Manager
March 2, 2012Posted by on
When it is about web designing and meeting the deadlines, every minute counts especially for the team manager. Constructive use of every single minute and optimizing the output through use of the resources available is very crucial for the success of the team. Some of the prominent aspects of the constructive use of a single minute are as follows.
• Setting of goals:
The first thing to be done after taking any web designing project at hand is the setting of goals. The team members are just given a minute to jot down a list of goals they want to achieve and after that they are given some time to write 250 words about the ways to achieve those goals. A copy of the list is kept with the manager while another copy is kept with the team member. This sort of goal setting assures that the team member takes up those responsibilities that he/she can fulfill. If that team member cannot achieve the set goal then he/she should not enlist it on the page given to him/her. This sort of brain storming sessions and exercises help the team members to resolve the issues which otherwise could be the responsibility of the team manager. This assures less of problems and more of solutions.
Just a minute of appreciation of the achievements of the team members can work wonders with their output and efficiency. Every team member expects to be reprimanded when things go wrong. Usually appreciation or praises are few. When a person is appreciated for his/her achievement, he/she gets motivated and works more enthusiastically. When this is done immediately forth other team members it has a positive and competitive effect on them. Appreciation works very effectively for boosting the morale of the team members especially when the new employees are undergoing training and getting inducted in the organization. Punishment and reprimanding is not the solution of any mistake done by the team member. Instead if the team member is praised for whatever he/she has done right and guided to avoid mistakes in the future, the team member will be motivated to contribute more towards the organizational goals.
Reprimanding is usually the last resort for the manager to control the work of the team members. The reprimanding should be systematic and methodical. It should not be personal or biased but based on the study of what went wrong and why it went wrong. Reprimanding should be done as soon as the mistake is known so that the corrective measures can be taken as soon as possible before the issue is escalated. If the mistake happens and two team members are responsible for it, both should be equally reprimanded.
