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 genre of music helps in increasing productivity?
Closed, as it seems there are no citations/referenced studies proving this. Maybe a better place would be Skeptics.

comment Is there a software available that auto completes sentences?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is solely an application recommendation question, and not even a productivity one.

comment To-Do list that allows users to search - really required?
This question sounds like a rant - you may have 20-25 items in a list, others may have many more than that and still be very productive, possibly even more productive. Closed as subjective!

comment How should I use my last month before my medical entrance exams?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is not about productivity. You are asking about a specific exam and asking others to define whether particular materials are sufficient. It's totally down to you and your learning capabilities.

comment How to recover from a sad situation and concentrate on the tasks on hand?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is not about personal productivity. As mentioned below it sounds like you should seek some professional help for possible depression.

comment How can I develop a system to question deeper motivations?
The edit does improve the question a lot, however it still boils down to "What questioning systems exist" - which will either lead to list answers (will get closed as too broad) or the answer "No". Is there a separate question in here about how to build questioning systems or what should be in such a system?

comment How can I develop a system to question deeper motivations?
It fits in with the psychology of self worth, but not within the scope defined in the faq for this site.
