Got piles?

If you’re afraid to put all your papers away for fear you’ll forget to do something, you’re not alone. Welcome to the wonderful world of project management. Whether you realize it or not, each and every one of us is a project manager. Whenever you work on a multi-step task, you’re in fact managing a project. A big key to project management success is managing all that paper so you know what needs to be done and have support documents at your finger tips.

Below are ten tips for keeping all your project paperwork under control so you can focus on the important stuff — getting those projects done.

Tip #1: Gather project papers together.

Whether you use a manila file folder, a three ring binder or a simple binder clip, be sure to keep all your paperwork for a single project grouped in a one place. This applies to short and simple projects like taking a special order for a client, to long and involved projects such as planning a new marketing campaign or business after-hours event.
