How To Meet A Deadline – Prioritising Effectively

We are constantly faced with pressure to achieve deadlines in our busy days.

This video will help you achieve those deadlines by ensuring that you have the right information, which you then prioritise in the best way.

Firstly, we need to establish the deadline details:

  • Who is it for?
  • What is required?
  • Why is it needed and why has a deadline been set?
  • When is the deadline?
  • How does the work need to be completed?
  • Where do we need to be at key stages?

Understanding the answers to these questions and others, you will have all the information you need.

You can then think about prioritisation.

Start by looking at your to do list and the deadlines:

  • Which ones are most important?
  • Chose a criteria
  • Are they considering what deadlines are you measured against?
  • Which are business critical?
  • Which ones will improve your bottom line?

From the list, pick your top three and label them A, B and C.

Then compare A v B; A v C and, then, B v C.

Which comes up as the most critical? Maybe it will work out that it is B first, C second and A third.

You then have a plan. If you get any interruptions or other requests, you are able to say “I can work on your request, but I need to do complete these other three activities first”.

That way you complete the most important and critical deadlines.

That’s How to Meet a Deadline – Prioritising Effectively.
