Suppose, a customer changes the product launch time. Managers need to know how to prioritize tasks, can tell employees to stop what they are doing to focus on solving urgent customers’ work.


The most important thing in observing and evaluating is not delaying what needs to be done, being flexible in work project management. From there, the quality of project management will be most clearly reflected in the launched product.
