HR Managers are asked to juggle a wide variety of assignments and add on special ones as needed. In many companies, the people, who formerly performed specialized tasks, are gone, along with their expertise. The work still needs to be done and HR Managers are called on to take on this work as a “project.” Most HR folks are not trained as project managers and may struggle with getting everything done effectively and efficiently. The basics of project management are universal and many of the “tools” are easy to use. During the disruption caused by COVID-19, additional challenges face HR professionals as they manage special assignments. Get the results your organization expects by applying fundamental project management approaches to tackle special assignments and integrate your work into a large project, you manage productively and systematically.
