Where is the end?

In the haste to get things done there is the risk that projects don’t get properly closed off. Like the machine installation that doesn’t get commissioned, or the meeting that gets concluded without actions being defined. If you look around you will see many activities that haven’t been thought through – reducing the positive impact that they can have.

The scope of an activity needs to be carefully considered. Where should the start and finish markers be placed? Without clearly communicating what the finish line looks like we might either not finish the job properly, or not meet our client’s needs. Talking to our clients and colleagues about the finish line can help to establish and develop a clear objective and help to save time and cost in the long term.

If you have loose ends to tie up then it may be worth considering what the end point looks like in more detail.
