29 Jun Revolutionise Project Management with Animated Video
With large-scale projects across multiple locations and teams, it is crucial for everyone to be on the same page to ensure the project is managed effectively. To make sure that your project stays on track, It is also important for project objectives to be communicated in a clear and concise way that leaves no room for ambiguity.
As a project manager, using animated video could provide a solution to keeping your remote projects lean, on time & efficiently managed. In this article, we discuss 3 ways to effectively implement animated video to assist when managing large scale remote projects:
- Boost employee morale and tell internal success stories
If you want to get the most out of your staff on remote projects, it is important to really motivate them to keep employees going during the busy work week.
A good way to rally the troops and generate positive energy in your team is to send a weekly or monthly roundup of positive success stories from around your business in video form.
Introduce your new hires, brag about the latest clients you’ve landed and show the charitable activities that your organisation has been involved with recently to your internal teams to create a positive and motivating work environment.
- Define work processes and replace training manuals
As a manager, you will discover pretty fast that different people in your organisation will have different ways of working which can sometimes be frustrating if managers that are unprepared for the situation.
One way to get a grasp on these different styles of working is by closely defining work processes and standards in order to more effectively manage the performance of your team.
By developing robust operational processes you can empower employees to have a better understanding of the task at hand and greater knowledge of what is expected of their role.
In the past, corporate standards and work processes had traditionally been set in corporate meetings, training seminars & lengthy corporate documents. However these days you can achieve a significant time and cost savings by using animated video to provide a more consistent and engaging experience.
- Increase brand understanding and tell your corporate story
Non-permanent, short-term & remote members employees are common on large scale projects. However, these remote workers may not have had the opportunity to get acquainted with your brand and gain a deep understanding of what you stand for.
To make things crystal-clear, an animated brand video can help to tell the story of your brand, explain your core values and define the key aspects of your products and service to ensure there are no misunderstandings going forward.
It is especially important to leverage the power of video if your organisation is looking to attract dynamic millennial talent. It has been reported in a survey conducted by Microsoft that millennials are visual learners who are significantly more stimulated by the use of video content than they are from other forms of media.
If your business employs anyone between the ages of 20 and 38, then you have millennials in your workforce.
We worked with the Coalition for Inclusive Capitalism to create this animated video to give a brief outline of their brand values, set the scene for external stakeholders and help internal staff to gain a greater understanding of the organisations wider business context.
