Tips to Implementing Doable, Chewable Chunks®

As we continue our discussion on the value of using Doable, Chewable Chunks® to tackle a big project, here are some tips:

  • First, identify the universe of what needs to be accomplished – this is the big, audacious project that seems overwhelming to take on
  • Then, define what should and could be accomplished within a 4 – 6 month timeframe – this is the “low, hanging fruit” and/or those tasks that will provide more immediate results
  • Ensure that you carve out a deliverable at the end of this 4 – 6 months – in other words, ensure that you can accomplish what you set out to do during this timeframe

This is the foundation and initial steps in implementing Doable, Chewable Chunks®. Need help? Contact Charlene Aldridge at 972.447.9787 or to discuss how we can assist you with implementing this methodology.

Benefits of Doable, Chewable Chunks®

In our most recent newsletter, we provided a partial list of the benefits to utilizing Aldridge Kerr’s Doable, Chewable Chunks® methodology.

Here’s an expanded list of the benefits:

  • Positions the organization to better identify what the insurmountable challenge is and how to break it into manageable tasks (i.e., “chunks”)
  • Provides an approach to define what is most important to the organization
  • Allows those performing the tasks to identify and then implement based on the organization’s priorities
  • Builds credibility both internally and externally as deliverables are met, results are occurring more immediately, and there are “small wins” propelling the effort to desired results
  • Encourages the Team participating in the effort as results are realized more quickly, which in itself motivates the Team for further results
  • Breaks insurmountable tasks/goals/projects into doable, manageable pieces, resulting in projects being done on time and within budget
  • Provides a simple, “doable” approach to getting a bigger-than-life task completed
  • Is not an intimidating approach
