Project Management in Quality Management Systems - Keep it on Track

Project Management requires teamwork

This is the first year where my daughter has started homework.  It's nothing mind-bending (kindergarteners are not doing quadratic equations or trigonometry just yet), but it's still a task every night for her.  Her teacher provides her with a list of homework tasks every Monday that need to be completed by Friday - it's up to her (and us) to complete these tasks by the end of the week.  So we sit down every Monday night and being our routine of planning out what we want to cover each night.  We usually start with the harder stuff (Math - yuck), and try to cover more in the early part of the week, so that, come Thursday night we have little to no work left to finish (which she likes).

Then you know how far you've come, and how far you need to go; with that kind of visibility you can plan your route, save your resources, and get through your journey easier.
