New Techniques in Time Management
6 contact hours (typically delivered in a one-day session)
This course introduces new techniques in time management. By the end of the session, participants will have an understanding of what it takes to manage their time so they can improve results AND spend less time doing so.
The course starts with an exploration of what work is and what tends to waste your time. We then explore the importance of setting direction and finding focus, utilizing a goal writing and management technique that is easy to use, but powerful and very adaptable. The course focus then moves to visual management of work, using a simple card and board system to inventory and manage work, both for individuals and for teams. The power of the visual approach coupled with prioritization of backlogged work and careful management of how much work is completed at any given time leads to faster completion of high priority efforts. How to handle exceptions to planned work, such as work that must be expedited and work that is blocked, is also explored, along with ideas to help avoid interruptions and fatigue.
We will explore a few technology tools that have proven to be helpful, such as Kanban.
No time management course would be complete without addressing procrastination, meeting management, delegation, work space and file organization, email and communications structure, and day-to-day habits that lead to efficiency gains. This course covers them all, but with the latest thinking based on brain research.
This session includes several hands-on, experiential exercises.
