One thought on “Daily list of questions for my projects”

  1. Great compilation of questions which a manager especially consultant should cater on a daily basis .Though i would like to add a few other points and i would like you to correct me if i am wrong as you are vastly experienced .
    For project teams:
    1. Is my team motivated towards the work ? (This includes their satisfaction graph)
    – Are they getting enough rewards or incentive for the work?
    – How is their growth ?
    (This may b for a long run but i guess is important for a team point of view)
    2. What is my impact on the team ? (Though i am the captain of the ship i need to review my position from time to time)

    I hope you to get some valuable inputs on these from you .
