To be an effective junior executives or managers, these are the things that you need take into accounts when your boss or superior asks you do some works or to initiate a project:

  1. What is the scope of the work or project that is given to you?
  2. How long is the time given to you to complete this task?
  3. How much is the budget allocated for this work?
  4. Who are the people in the company will involve in this work?
  5. Who are the external parties that you need to deal with?
  6. Who are the influential and powerful people that you need to work with?
  7. How do you plan to effectively communicate with all of these people?
  8. Is there any existing business process in order to execute this work?
