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 is opinion based, and is a project management question, not a personal productivity question.

comment Nootropics (“learning” drugs)
Questions asking for a 'best' resource are off topic for two reasons - "best" is opinion, and it may change over time

I think I must agree with the flags - this isn't about Personal Productivity. Have a read of productivity.stackexchange.com/help/on-topic

comment What's the most effective physical exercise routine to boost productivity?
Welcome to the site - this one is unfortunately very opinion based. Everyone has different preferred exercises - you need to look at what you most enjoy, and what makes you feel most alert.

comment Is there a community where professionals who work from home can work together virtually?
The difference is interesting - I am by far at my most productive when on my own, with no people within miles of me :-)

comment How to increase retention capabilitiy
Pomodoro is not about retaining information. It is about focusing. Spaced repetition improves your retention capability.

comment What trigger do you use to get up early in the morning?
The question is about getting up, so that is what my answer us about. Once up, early morning is the most productive time of day for me, as I just get straight into working.
