Active management and monitoring of the team
What is it?
Active monitoring starts with creating a detailed plan that achieves a certain goal and then driving it to completion. Sometimes the plan needs to be altered and there are almost always problems but leaders who stay on top of the details get results, especially in a virtual environment.
Why is it important?
Murphy’s Law tells us that there will always be problems. Things rarely go according to plan. If managers gave up at the first sign of a problem, their organization wouldn’t need them. Managers need to stay focused on deadlines and deal with problems swiftly and creatively or things will never get done.
