February is the Month of Priorities

February 2, 2017 Marcus Varner

Prioritization is a perennial favorite topic here at Workfront, as it seems to be for the business world at large. But setting and keeping priorities in our work is anything but easy. External forces—a change in company strategy or managers who aren't fond of "bureaucracy"—can easily sideswipe our best-laid processes for prioritizing our work. If they're not carefully crafted, we can be forced to abandon our priorities to keep our heads afloat. Yes, prioritization is a tricky thing—potentially powerful but tricky.

To sort out this thing called prioritization, we here at the Workfront blog will be dedicating the month of February to the subject of priorities. Here's just a sampling:

  • How to Set Priorities 101
  • Prioritization Mistakes to Avoid
  • How Real Teams Are Controlling Their Workload and Winning With Priorities

Along the way, we'll also have some great pieces by thought leaders like Jay Baer, Andrea Fryrear, and Barry Hodge that you'll definitely want to make a top priority on your reading list. Enjoy!

While we get a killer month of priority-discussing goodness underway, tell us how you prioritize your work in the comments below. What challenges have you found in trying to create and stick to team priorities? How have you overcome those challenges?
