4 Action Plans A tool to manage targets which are set in the long term. Break the target into small, manageable action points. Demonstrates very clearly the amount of tasks which are required to complete the overall target. Placed in an appropriate order and given a realistic timeframe for completion. There are many circumstances which could arise during the course of the plan which is why an Action Plan enables the individual to take notes of changes or improvements as they arise. 4

8 Examples of Systems Used to Monitor Targets 1) The appraisal or review process. Line Manager to discuss the employee’s progress and targets achieved. 2) A buddy system monitors targets. It consists of an employee working alongside another employee who is there to offer advice and support whenever it is required. If the employee is having difficulty with a particular aspect of the target then the buddy can be used to offer guidance and solutions. 3) Personal Development Plans (PDPs) 4) A hands-on approach to monitoring where Line Manager continually checks work. This method can identify any problems immediately. Any issues staff should discuss and review targets with their line manager 8

9 Time Management It is essential that targets are set and monitored so that deadlines are met and projects completed. However, it is important to note that at the centre of a successful target lies the art of EFFECTIVE TIME MANAGEMENT. Time is arguably an organisation’s scarcest resource – very easily it can be lost! The role of the organisation therefore is to ensure that time is used wisely by minimising activities which prove to be wasting time and maximise the use of time. 9

10 Time Stealers! Lack of forward planning Unexpected visits Interruption from phones Taking on too much work Lack of self-discipline Making unnecessary journeys Searching for lost files Not delegating Procrastination 10

11 Effective Time and Task Management An employee can adopt a number of strategies to ensure effective time and task management: Ensure targets are SMART*, clearly defined and have a good structure so that the task can be broken down into manageable pieces within an appropriate timeframe for completion. Create a Priorities List and tick those tasks which have been completed so that attention can be given to the remaining tasks. Create an Action Plan so that it is clearly shown which tasks are assigned to the employee and what the deadline for completion is. Communicate with Line Manager at all times so that problems can be rectified immediately and not hamper the completion of the task. Diaries (desk, electronic, smartphones, apps etc) 11
