One of the important contributors to job effectiveness is the clarity of job expectations. In the world of projects and SLA’s, where client needs evolve rapidly, many a times, new tasks are put onto people’s plate without much conversation. Creating a work order which clearly states what providers are supposed to accomplish on-site can go a long way in enhancing buyer-provider relationship and project success.
Below are the elements in a work order that buyers should focus on to create a great work order:
- Work Order Title – to ensure right providers are notified about the task at hand
- Project and Client Information – for better reporting and analysis
- Manger and Contacts – to help providers reach out to you in case of any issues
- Scope of Work – to detail job requirements, equipment required, dress code, etc
- Tasks – represent the required sequential activities to be done on-site without which a job cannot be termed complete
- Payment terms – help to define the outer limits for compensation to avoid future negotiations
