Attention to Detail

Attention to detail is about achieving thoroughness and accuracy when accomplishing a task. It can include providing accurate, consistent numbers; offering information in a useable form and on a timely basis to others who need to act on it; maintaining a checklist or calendar to ensure that small details are not overlooked; producing work that requires little or no checking; communicating information without details being lost, forgotten or omitted.
