Many organisations seem to be trying to do too much, with too little. The list of “critical” initiatives and projects seems to keep getting bigger.
Committing to lots of priorities seems like a good idea. It looks good to say you’ll complete 100 initiatives this year. The problem is that in reality, it looks more like you’ll complete 20 of those initiatives. Often the pressure flows down hill. The senior leaders at the top set too many priorities, and then everyone else needs to deal with it.
So in this episode, I look at some of your options when you and your team are faced with too many priorities that you won’t be able to achieve.
