Set Clear Expectations
Clearly defining project goals, timelines, and roles and responsibilities, provides a team with a roadmap for success. When team members know what is expected of them, they can better prioritize tasks, stay focused, and feel a sense of ownership over their work.
With this complete picture, each team member has a clear understanding of their individual responsibilities and how they contribute to the overall success of the project. By clearly defining roles, you also avoid confusion, minimize overlap, and ensure that tasks are completed efficiently.
For mother and daughter duo Stacey and Tasha Ranieri, communicating expectations to the team is central to the way they run Ranieri Construction, their home remodeling business in the Las Vegas area. “We’re both very hands-on, and we’re very communicative with our subcontractors,” Stacey says.
They also make the best use of technology to make sure everyone is getting the message and on the same page. “I love technology. I will continue to utilize it to its fullest,” Tasha says.
Choosing the right tech tools helps assure that the right information is being delivered to the right team members. With Houzz Pro software, contractors and interior designers collaborate seamlessly with team members so everyone knows the project status, and work they are responsible for before they reach the project site.
By taking advantage of streamlined permissions you can easily add team members and adjust the amount of information each one receives. A field crew or design team member, for example, does not need to know the details of profit and loss statements for a project, just as your finance team does not need to get bogged down with information about what time to show up on the project site tomorrow. Targeted communication cuts through the noise.
