That’s the norm of the day! The moment we are told about a project our reflex is how long is it going to take? When will it end? How many hours? What is the project completion date?…. we do not even think once as to what the project is about, what technology, what product etc. We have overwhelmed ourselves so much that we made time a scarce resource… a very scarce one actually! It has always been this way. Know why?…. Time is Money! You save it, you invest it – You see it grow! And the converse is true too. Having said that, then the most important thing to do is efficient Time Tracking. And the irony is; we end up “time tailing” instead of time tracking. Disagree?? How about taking a quick stab at answering the questions below and honestly share the count of questions you answered (did not have answers for) with a “NO”!! Do I know how many hours can I bill on the current project? Will I meet my current project deadlines? How much time did I spent on the just concluded project? How do I give my client a realistic project estimate? How much should I quote my client for the upcoming project? Did I bill my client with the correct billable hours? How much time did my team spent on non-billable work? Which tasks consume the most of my and my teams’ time? Did my team actually spent the hours they claim they did on the task? What is my current resource utilization? Do I have any resources available to take on new projects? Alarmed at your answers?
