What steps do you take to make sure that a project is completed timely, on budget, and to company standard?

Employers want to get a general understanding of your managerial skills. Explain to them how and why you’re capable of managing a group of people in a way that will achieve the results they want.

Example Answer
First and foremost, I would be sure to communicate with my team about all the details of our project, as everyone needs to understand our timeline, budget and standards. Once everyone is on the same page, I would delegate certain team members to take on tasks they excel at, and carefully monitor everyone’s progress. If need be, I would also set mini deadlines for portions of the project to make sure everyone stays on track.
