What is Task Ambiguity


Task Ambiguity is a problem that usually builds up upon a poor work planning approach. If project or business managers fail to accurately deliberate project roles and their tasks in the team, then certain task ambiguity can easily occur on the course of project performance and it can trigger much of confusion, enormous time wasting, and other counter-productive problems. Task ambiguity takes its roots in the following inefficiencies which may take place on the stage of work planning: 

  • Duplication of duties: two or even more people meet at the same turf where even one person can cope very well. People are linked to the same tasks which do need much collaboration, they can be done individually and independently, so people may waste too much energy negotiating and clarifying the situation (instead of focusing on their actual work);
  • Task is formulated lamely: a performer assigned to this task doesn’t fully understand what he or she needs to do at this work, so this employee has to waste loads of productive time by going back to his or her manager again and again to clarify more and more details. This could happen if a task:
    • Addresses ambiguous objects and matters without sufficient specification, so a confusion may occur on a continuous basis;
    • Includes places with missed details that will need to be deliberated during the main work, so a time which was intended for better work planning will appear added to the time of actual work performance, causing of course an unreasoned delay;
