It is very common that the project manager isn’t always able to use all the available resources efficiently, in which case you will need to make plan changes and check the previous circumstances when your staff lack competence to carry out their responsibilities.
A key element of project management is the task assignment of tasks. If the assignment of tasks to busy or disorganized workers then you will have to spend inordinate time on maintaining the objects/ tasks.
You can avoid your staff from task assignment by assigning tasks to competent and organized subordinates. Especially when your employees are knowledgeable to complete the assigned task, it can be very time consuming to make improvement and make often the decision of which task to accept.
