Creating a task structure is a method of building work decomposition for breaking bigger task into smaller logically interrelated pieces (operations) that are intended to systematize process of task performance to economize time and resources of those who perform work. According to this loose task structure definition the best way to ensure timely task completion is to establish standardized process that can deliver task results by following the step-by-step procedure described in documented plan, better supported by schema.
There is a particular theory which proves what is task structure and how to create it, but basically in order to create task structure it necessary to have clear understanding of how task can be performed, what sub-problems should be set and sub-solutions delivered etc, so task structure leadership should be assigned to professional person who knows the trade, or to a group of persons who can unite their efforts at building task structure.
CentriQS is real-time business management and teamwork software that can be used for creating task structures – breaking down projects into sub-tasks, sub-problems along with setting sub-requirements, outputs, time parameters etc. Basically, this software is designed for planning and controlling different projects through using adjustable modes (timeline, calendar, task tree, to-do list) and analyzing performance of your workgroup in order to identify project evolution , control costs and team efficiency.
To set task structure – do the following:
- start CentriQS software and go to the Tasks view
- create parent tasks representing tasks of higher level
- add sub-tasks to your parent tasks
- plan to-do lists and set action plan goals
- plan costs, set priorities and assign sub-tasks to performers
- control performance parameters in the Task Analytics view
