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.

Maybe you are trying to think too deeply then, if successful people in your company seem less organised than you, maybe you are good at the wrong things.

Gtd is irrelevant. It is just a tool

Everything helps. Member, most people plan, are productive and organised. What are you doing different?

You cannot future-proof your activities. You can try and predict, but really try and prepare for eventualities by getting better in your chosen areas, being open to new ideas and working hard.

Heh - I don't think I have worked at any company where that law (or the local equivalent) was adhered to :-)

You got my upvote anyway - despite it not resonating with me, I can see how it might be useful for people who would get resentful about missed time.

Interesting...not sure how well this would work in the context of a very busy job, but interesting, nonetheless...

comment Device that feeds paper to scanner blindly
This question appears to be off-topic because it is really a technology shopping/reference question. It is not a productivity question, simply a 'buy the right scanner' question.
