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.

This one amuses me, but I'm not sure point 4 is ethically sound...

comment Why do earplug cable always tangle up after the same pattern?
This has nothing to do with productivity, and is also easily provable as false - as it has never happened to any of my headphones. In fact, I don't think I have ever had headphones tangle, so I'm not sure what you are doing wrong :-)

comment Dilemma of spending time with family members, watching TV and doing something fruitful?
Jeanne is spot on here. If the OP can't manage this informally, then they need to decide their priorities, then then write a schedule and stick to it - for some this will be family first, for others it may be developing hobbies etc - but it has to be a personal decision

This would help the OP remove his need for corrections, leading to an overall speed increase. Sounds good.

That's a good question. I've removed that, as it could come over as confrontational. Secretaries aim for higher speeds (120 wpm) though, so I think the example holds true.
