I need some advice please.. I am currently managing 13 Direct Reports. 11 on-site and 2 remote. This will probably grow to 15/16 in the near future due to taking over another area of responsibility. I am currently dong one-to-ones once a month, but it is not enough to get a clear picture of what is going on on a daily basis.
I was thinking of introducing weekly status reports which will mean that each DR will send me the following information every Friday:
1. What was planned for this week
2. What has been achieved this week
3. What is planned for next week
I am hoping this will help me to get a better handle of progress of various tasks rather than chase people up as I am a bit struggling at the moment...
Any feedback/comments or any other ideas would be greatly appreciated.
