Assignments

Scenario
ABC Suites (Pty) Ltd
“Great ability develops and reveals itself increasingly with every new assignment ” - Baltasar Gracian

The Challenge:

Candy Wrapper (CEO) would often assign items to her Managers and Staff but had no way of knowing if they were actually being done. Having to remember to follow-up with individuals timeously to check on progress was stressful. When she didn’t follow-up however she found that important deadlines were often missed.

How ABC Suites uses epic:

Candy started using epic to assign deadline driven items. Not only does she now have line of sight as to what has been assigned to who, but because the rest of her team have a view of the various assignments a culture of supporting one another as well as holding each other accountable has developed which helps ensure that things get done in time.

She also likes the fact that assignees can comment on progress all the way to completion.

Auto alerts are sent to assignees when an assignment is allocated and when deadlines are looming – this all helps to keep everyone focused.

Finally, there is an option to self-assign items which everyone on the team can do.
