Forbes recently ran an article examining the benefits of changing from a top-down approach to project management to one that is more collaborative and involves all team members. 

At Puddle, our project manager, Mary, is always on hand to ensure operations are running smoothly, organise team tasks, and sort out team calendars. Yet, the responsibility of managing teams doesn’t just lie to her! She gives everyone at the team puddle visibility into project plans, which empowers the entire team to run more smoothly and execute projects successfully. 

Here is why giving everyone in the team visibility into the project plan is a great way to empower your team: 

Everyone knows who is doing what:

By ensuring everyone on a project has hands-on access, everyone can see who is responsible for different tasks, meaning team members know who to go to when there is an issue or question. 

At Puddle, we operate better when team members collaborate, so we like to make sure everyone knows who is doing what for each task. This means we know who to ask about what projects. 

Boosts engagement

Making sure your team works collaboratively boosts morale and engagement throughout teams and encourages better working relationships. With colleagues depending on them for work, it’ll likely mean employees are more engaged and committed. 


Project managers who trust employees to manage their own tasks and give them insight into how tasks are run empower them and give them a sense of responsibility. 

Supports prioritisation

Project managers who give employees the opportunity to choose how they prioritise are often more effective. Providing more complete visibility into the whole project allows for effective task prioritisation. 

At Puddle, we run a tight ship when it comes to project management, making us a highly efficient and effective team. And, if we do say so ourselves, we’re pretty fun to work with too!
