Describe when you or a group that you were a part of was in danger of missing a deadline. What did you do?
I have always tried to anticipate challenges that could
lead to missing project deadlines having worked on projects and become
frustrated by the unexpected situations that can cause delays. Different
things get in the way and disrupt the time set aside to achieve certain
goals! By anticipating some of the more likely things that can go wrong,
it is far easier to be consistent in meeting deadlines.
To complete the project, I depended on Account Managers to provide some information, and my request was unreasonable, I should have kept in mind having relied on them previously, that they might not respond favourably to my request as ultimately the project was not their responsibility.
Having also forgotten revisions, corrections and updates, I had to reschedule the time needed to make the revisions and corrections to complete the project.
