DE­CIDE HOW TO DI­VIDE UP THE WORK

Finweek English Edition - - MANAGEMENT -

“There are a num­ber of ways to slice any given job,” says Wil­liams. “It’s im­por­tant to con­cep­tu­alise all dif­fer­ent parts and di­vide them up in the most ef­fec­tive way.” Some peo­ple split the work by each tak­ing re­spon­si­bil­ity for cer­tain tasks. This is called the ‘ is­lands model’ or a ‘ job split’. Oth­ers share the same work­load and sim­ply di­vide up the days (usu­ally with a bit of over­lap). This is called the ‘twins model’ and is of­ten the sim­pler of the two. The model you choose will de­pend on the na­ture of the job and what pref­er­ences and skills you each bring to it.
