Here's a review of the key points that we've covered in this article:
Define your tasks. Break the big project into several small projects.
Break down steps. List each part of even the smallest projects as attainable steps. This keeps it simple.
Get a visual plan in front of your team. Charting your course is the best way to share your vision and to keep your project on track.
Start with the end in mind. Once you know your move date, plan backward to determine your timeline.
Build a move team from members outside the IT department. It helps with coordinating efforts.
Whether you're moving your entire organization or just remodeling the computer room, using these project management skills will greatly reduce the anxiety, frustration, and time consumed to produce the favorable results that you want. When you use an organized approach like this, you're setting yourself up for success.
I wish you success and look forward to sharing with you the next article, in which we get deep into the details about how to design your plan.
