What is a To Do List, and what are best practices, tools and templates for teams and organizations?
Definition of To Do List
A To Do List is a prioritized list of all the tasks and responsibilities that need to be performed for a job. The list shows everything that needs to be done in the order in which it needs to be completed.
Description of To Do List
Creating a To Do List helps keep employees from feeling overwhelmed and empowers them to feel in control of their day to day tasks. Since most businesses run on tight schedules and deadlines, the To Do List helps to keep projects from falling behind or getting lost.
A To Do List is a list of all projects, tasks, or assignments that need to be done in a specific time period, which could be a day, week, month or year. Once all the tasks are itemized, they should be prioritized for the most efficient results. Once prioritized, deadlines will be less likely to be missed. Larger projects can be broken down into subtasks, so that the project doesn’t seem so big, yet every time the employee can check off a sub-task, they are closer to getting the larger project completed. This helps employees feel a sense of accomplishment and results in higher job satisfaction.
Tools & Templates
A To Do List is a tool that can be created by organizations or individuals using a spreadsheet program or project management software.
