By tracking the progress of individuals and your team you will be able to get to know the pinpoint things and causes. Make sure each team member feel heard.

You can make digital dashboards and whiteboards to make planning cool. Meet regularly to discuss further difficulties or changes.

Take feedback

Daily or weekly check-ins can help you define your progress and success. Keeping your goals clear and maintained will make you more energetic and motivated. It also helps you to adapt and accept the change. If you think the particular goal is not working, update it. Remember the purpose and end goal while you make and update the goal.

Time to celebrate!
