  • Management, the Project List, and Projects

    With a team of ~20 reporting to me, my teams have a lot of distinct projects running concurrently. I've heard David Allen say a few times "the project list is king." I'm stumped on if it makes sense for my project list to contain every project that rolls up under me, just the projects I'm actively working on, or some combination?

    I'm curious what others things and/or have done?

    Great question. When we coach people in your situation, we often suggest they create a separate list for the projects they are monitoring to completion, but which are not their direct project to take actions (just get updates.) So it might look like separate lists like this:

    -Projects
    -Projects - Delegated (or Projects - Overseeing or Projects - Monitoring or Projects - Direct Reports)

    Does that help?
