Using Timesheets

One common method for collecting hours worked on project tasks is requiring team members to complete and submit timesheets at regular intervals. However, several obstacles are involved:

  • Workers not used to completing timesheets might exhibit strong resistance to this requirement on their time.

  • Workers might resist the increased visibility of time reporting.

  • Any new system might be an overlap with an existing system.

  • Time reporting might have been tried in the past, which increases objections to "new and improved" efforts.

  • Compliance is frequently an issue unless mandated by management.

  • Incomplete records from previous reporting periods might communicate false information about the present work status.

  • Any system might require high maintenance time or costs to keep all work assignment lists current, given the fluid nature of most projects.
