DECIDE HOW TO DIVIDE UP THE WORK
“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.
