    The environment is fast-paced and challenging at Procter and Gamble. How do you determine priorities when you have multiple projects due?

      How to Answer

      When you feel torn between multiple projects or tasks, how do you decide which one needs your attention the most? Assure the interviewer that you can be diligent when it comes to assessing your priorities.

      "First and foremost, I will prioritize projects that most closely align with P&G's strategic goals and have the highest potential to affect the company's bottom line. I am comfortable delegating tasks when needed- per P&G's focus on leadership, I want to make sure I have a clear vision of where we are going and can effectively focus resources to achieve leadership's objectives and strategies."

      Michelle's Answer

      "Assuming that the projects have different stakeholders, I interview each to determine the value of increased productivity, morale or revenue, decreased costs, and the overall impact. Just like Procter and Gamble values ownership among its team members, I accept personal accountability to meet business needs, improve systems and help others improve their effectiveness. Looking for this kind of continual process improvement can help clearly delineate priorities and eliminate wasteful efforts on projects that don't directly contribute to P&G's bottom line."

      "I think that a great strategy to assess the importance of different projects and options is to analyze their pros, cons, costs, and benefits of doing the project now versus later so that it is clear what the impacts are going to be. Then, I can plan my time accordingly and be as efficient as possible."

      Good idea! Determining priorities can be very important, particularly in a fast-paced, busy environment. If you have an example of a time in the past when you had to prioritize work projects, consider discussing that as well.
