Creating a Project Handbook Binder
Are logistical problems causing delay in big projects? Achieve your goals efficiently by creating a project binder for your company! Here are a few tips that can help you design a project binder that will not only keep your team on track:
When creating a project binder, it is important to keep functionality in mind. Think of a design that looks professional and will define the nature of your project. Most of the time, the company logo and your project title are enough for a functional design. But, if you are working on a product launch, concept art of the product on the binder is a great way to keep the whole team motivated.
A binder, as it is, is already enough to keep all the documents of a project in one place. However, consider adding extra features like clear pockets where your team can insert notes and documents. This will give them easy access to additional information acquired while working on the project.
To make your project binder even more organized, insert tabs and dividers that can break down your project into smaller sections. This will make it easier for your team to scan through the binder if they are looking for specific information. If the project is really big, it is advisable to create multiple binders for different teams so they will know the steps towards their goal in detail.
The key to a successful project is an inspired team. If you want to keep encouraging the team to keep moving toward the goal, consider creating a motivational slogan or a quote and incorporate it into the interior of the binder. You can place this slogan in areas they will usually see like the pockets and tab dividers.
Finally, make sure that your project binder does not end up in storage by putting it into a slip case. A frost slip case will not only make your binder look even better, but will allow it to sit upright on a desk or a shelf for easy access. A case will also add additional protection, which ensures that the binder will last throughout the project.
