An unclear communication with the client or failing to swallow the requirements can lead to a confused product design. Here, a project manager has to lead the way by being a cultural manager to ensure that all the gaps are joined with an appropriate bridge.

Look beneath or surround you, I’m sure you would have gone through a phase where a designer handover’s something to a developer and has to be returned back due to some errors. Time doesn’t stop for you while you are doing this back and forth. Use the right processes and tools can save a lot of time.

Be a tasker and not multi-tasker

Designs flow from the vision of its creator. It usually happens that a developer gets bogged down by the tasks on hand and as a human tendency, no one could sustain the energy throughout the day.

Nearly 80% of products miss their launch dates (source) and Time is money. The more you delay, the lesser you gain. But with these hacks, you get an opportunity to deliver more in less time, and most importantly beat the competitors by a fair margin. So just Go there and WIN!
