4. You have colleagues who never track times
If you’re self-employed you can directly skip to paragraph 6 – but employees should be aware of this:
Even if there is only one colleague on your project, who doesn’t track his times at all, or only tracked them less than once a week, the team’s times are wrong to an extent, that the whole tracking was practically for nothing.
In teams, employee‘s project times are rarely monitored individually. Rather, the focus is on the total hours per project, subproject, or project step.
This means: If the times of a colleague are missing or are grossly incorrect, your own project times become part of a false total time.
Therefore, it doesn’t really matter how much effort you put in. It was a waste of time.
