Task Achievement is the act of doing a certain task by an individual or a group of individuals in order to finish it in a way that ensures success. It determines a situation when objectives of the task are accomplished according to preset priorities, time limits, process requirements, responsibilities, and authorities.
When a team (or an individual) works on achieving a task, the following 10 constraints should be considered by the team to ensure successful task achievement:
- Purpose. Is the team clear about the task assigned?
- Responsibilities: Is every team member clear about duties to be performed?
- Supervision. Has the task been agreed with the supervisor of the team?
- Objectives. Has each team member clearly defined and agreed on the task objectives?
- Process. Is there a well-defined process to do the task by the team?
- Priorities. Is the current task prioritized against other tasks of the team?
- Resources. Are there adequate resources available for the team to achieve the task?
- Working Conditions. Can the team make joint efforts and work collaboratively?
- Authority. Is the line of authority and subordination clear for team members?
- Progress. Is there a task management system to control and track achievement progress?
