Red Light, Green Light
As kids we played red light, green light. A simple game of stop and start, where if you were caught moving as “red light” was called, you were out of the game. As project, business and sales managers the game has changed to become, green, yellow and red. In this context – green is due today, yellow is what’s coming up and red indicates you’ve missed something. What’s more, there are many more balls in the air (projects, customers, contacts) to keep track of on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. Having a system or tool in place to help manage them is necessary. Being able to see your entire list from a big picture point of view, makes it much easier to see where and when to focus and follow-up. If you’re searching for a simple, easy to use tool to maximize the number of green lights and minimize the number of red lights, take a look at W5Templates.
