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.

If I knew the product I might do just that. However I have never heard of this one. The op however has, so can easily edit the answer.

comment Simple program with subtasks
Answers that are just a link are very low value so tend to get marked down or deleted. Look at the higher scoring answers - they not only have a link, but also a description of functionality.

comment writing reports about phone meetings and keeping track and following up on them
Yep, excel makes this quite easy. If you have a column for topic you can use pivot tables to view on a per conversation basis if you want.

comment recover from depression
As per comments - this is off topic here. You'd be better off looking at professional help where depression is concerned.

The handful of folks I knew undergoing depression treatment were encouraged to work, and my employer had a process for tailoring support to help manage them.

comment How should one feel inside when he sees the clash of education and money?
BROY - this is still a very open ended, subjective philosophical discussion, not a question which works here. Some people may love this kind of job, others may hate it. Not answerable in any objective way.
