Q

When management fails to set priorities for work, employees tend to _______.

A. Decide which tasks to do by flipping coins

B. Schedule tasks over a reasonable period of time

C. Assume each task is of equal importance

D. Work on one task to completion before moving on

A

Answer: C. Assume each task is of equal importance

When the management of a team or a unit does not explicitly state or make their employees understand the importance of each task, then the employees will treat each task with equal importance. This is because the employees depend on the management to create a table of preference or a system of priority for each task.

Flipping coins is not standard office or organizational practice, and the role of scheduling tasks over a period of time lies with the management. Employees will only effectively work on one task until completion before moving on if the management specifies the tasks to be done first, and if the employees understand their individual levels of importance.
