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 What kind of permissions are necessary to give a workshop or write a book about GTD?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is not about personal productivity. It is about the requirements for permission to use trademarked or copyrighted materials.

If you can find a notable claim here, this is actually an ideal question to migrate to Skeptics.SE. It isn't really on topic here, despite being very interesting.

Upvoted especially for the 'living and breathing your thesis. Explain to your loved ones and friends' comment! Support from them makes it so much easier.

This isn't about personal productivity, it is solely about your preference for how noisily you wake up.

comment Touch typing Catch-22: How do I switch from hunt-and-peck without losing too much productivity during the switch?
Chris - this wall of text doesn't actually answer the question, which is how the OP can switch without losing productivity. Can you please re-read the question and edit your answer accordingly.

hmmm - that other question is structured rather better and has some answers which do seem to be on topic. I'll close this as a dupe of that one and see what happens.
