Here are few tips from "Softbrick" that will help you improve time management for yourself and your employees:

1.Planning and goal setting

As managers, team leads, or business owners we should provide clear goals and plans to the entire team, company, both for the short and long term. Make sure all of them are documented with deadlines and are easy to follow, create a to-do list or put them on a calendar.

2.Prioritize work

Makes sure that when goals and tasks are set they are prioritized and everyone is made aware of the priority. Keep the focus on a client and their needs, think about what has to be completed for your client to start using the product with the highest quality and best experience possible. This will enable the team to focus most important tasks and will eliminate most of the minor tasks where time is wasted.

3.Create a shorter feedback loop

Set up your process in such a way where you create a feedback loop with your team in the shortest possible time. Dedicate time for retrospectives and communicate with your team to get insights on possible delayers and improvements.

4.Implement a time tracking solution

It's important to understand how much time your employees are spending on their tasks. Setting up a time tracking solution where you can accurately see where your employees are spending their working time will help to identify potential waste and delayers on individual and team levels. However, make sure this is not done to micromanage, your employees should not feel like they are under a magnifying glass.

5.Balance workload

Very straightforward, but very important. Make sure the workload is balanced as best as possible and all the resources are utilized to the fullest but not overloaded. While having clear tasks and understanding how occupied the team is, you can better balance the workload helping to deliver products to our clients sooner.
