I have been managing international teams on global improvement programmes for FTSE and Fortune 100 companies for the last 10 years or so, and have a pretty good grasp on managing productivity from myself and teams of up to 100 - but still loads to learn.

Got my Prince2 foundation, and familiar with it through various public sector contracts.

I am a long term member of Mensa, the high IQ society, and head up two professional bodies in Scotland: ISACA and the Institute of Information Security Professionals.

Have founded two consultancies, and run large teams for two global professional services firms - so have an excellent view of the balance required at both ends.

Tend to look at the bigger picture, rather than the benefits of a specific tool.

comment Productivity apps are not for me!
blag - this is waaay to broad. If you like or dislike a particular app, that's up to you. If you want to use an app for a specific task, we can probably answer that reasonably well.

comment How to cope with the situation that my teacher was not happy with my mistake of writing a wrong title
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it has nothing to do with Personal Productivity. You could have a read of Workplace Stack Exchange to see if it may work there.

comment How to remember things you don't often use?
But in the specific instance the OP mentioned, this isn't useful as it's not a schedule issue, but a keeping that information somewhere issue

This doesn't answer the question - it's not about scheduling

comment How do I remind myself to stop browsing and start working
The answer to your specific question is easy: Yes - just use any timer app But in reality the problem is not the time, but the distraction aspect. Closing as duplicate of various posts here.
