Project Burnouts and Burnout rebound….

This is a common scenario while working with smaller team on bigger projects, weeks of demanding workload takes its toll and you discover the motivation isn’t quite what it used to be. Identifying and battling back from burnout is a skill every project manager must know. Some key areas which can help rebound, when in such situations:

  • Identify what inspires your team
  • Follow-up, Plan and preplan schedule
  • Seek assistance on prolonged tasks (Technical / Management etc….)
  • Break down bigger tasks into smaller and quickly achievable task
  • Have mid project bonuses to encourage the team
  • Have quick project debriefing regularly pointing out the good efforts involved upto that stage

Project burnouts normally occurs during the last phases of a project or when project is reaching completion stage.

Project burnout is one of the key reason for not being able to nail a project to completion.
