In this post, you will learn more about conducting and organising projects in English and about our new online Business English programme.
The use of English is prevalent in today’s business world, whether it be working or secondments abroad, seeking a promotion within one’s own group or in international meetings and seminars.
In this latest article, you will learn some key vocabulary for firstly organising a project and secondly for assigning missions. Thirdly, and finally, you will find out more about how we at GlobalExam can help you improve your Business English.
Let’s kick off with the question…
How can you organise a project?
Conducting a project in English can seem daunting at first, especially as it means managing in a foreign language. For the project to run smoothly, the scope of work should be clearly stated and defined, right from the very beginning. The project should therefore be well organised, whatever language you are working in.
There are some key words and phrases that can make life a little easier when the working language is English. Here are some examples:
- Network diagram: a visual representation of the responsibilities, tasks and workflow of the project in question.
- To meet the deadline: to finish something at or before the time (or date) it should be finished.
- To miss the deadline: to finish late.
- To schedule the kick-off meeting: to organise the first meeting between the project team and the client.
- The project schedule: a calendar, a timetable of the different phases of the project.
- WBS (Work Breakdown Structure): the architecture of the project detailing the larger and smaller tasks to reach the project’s goals.
Let’s move on now to think about…
Conducting a project, assigning missions in English
It is also crucial to delegate and get help for the project, there is often too much for one person to do! A project usually involves several people from several departments.
Here are some more example phrases:
- Can you send me a status report?: A request for a report containing the progress of the project and where it is currently at.
- Due date: the deadline.
- The project manager: the person in charge of the project.
- The task is due at the end of the month: the deadline for the task is the last day of this month.
- To assign someone a task: to give somebody a specific job to do on the project.
- To take over: to replace another person on a task.
