I'm working on a new project that currently has only me to lead it, so I often have to ask for help from some members from other department units.
I already set a timeline and scheduled a task for each member assignee to complete their task. However, because there are additional tasks for them, they do not have enough time to do it for me; they are busy with their daily tasks, so the project is running late.
I could not force them or use bossy words in order for them to do it because I am the one that's going to ask them for help. Still, I need the project to be on the schedule timeline set.
My question is: how can I make this project be on its timeline schedule, since now it is running late because other departments' assignees are already busy doing their daily tasks? It also might be that they do not want to help me or something.
Any advice or suggestions are really appreciated. Thanks so much.
