Boss: Hello guys, please ensure to complete the assignment by tomorrow 4 PM. I have a client meeting, starting within an hour and there after I will be flying to xxx. So please let me know if you anticipate any bottlenecks ASAP.
Team: Oh!.. This is the usual work we do. So what’s going to be troublesome.. Let us check it after the party.
And once the team started the work, they realized the missing link which could be filled in by their boss only and hence couldn’t proceed further as boss was unavailable by then.
And the scenario is not merely limited to a project assignment. It is repeated even in our daily life too.
We are social beings. And we cannot live in isolation. If we wish or not, we are bound to many dependencies all around us.
Still, many a time we fail to know and plan these dependencies. And it leads to waiting time or dishonoured consequences. If you are fond of queuing time, please skip reading.
Otherwise, think parallel and ask one.
“Is there a dependency associated?
Will there be waiting time if dependencies are not cleared out?
How can I avoid the dependency factors? ”
And finally get rid of the dependencies and make it an independent variable
