These days, we all have to deal with a tsunami of information and the many channels through which it comes: email, text, Twitter, LinkedIn, newsletters etc.
Often, we find ourselves dealing with a huge number of messages which fragment our attention and cause us to neglect what truly matters. Therefore, we need efficient and effective techniques to help keep the problem under control. This 2-day workshop addresses that need, providing practical tools and techniques that can be used immediately.
Day 1 of the course introduces you to the tools and techniques to deal with the various situations with which we are faced. Techniques such as Getting Things Done (GTD*), the use of the RACI Matrix, how to schedule your work in progress and the simplicity of the Kanban system. How to prioritise your work and operate your in-trays as well as understanding how to use delegation to help reduce stress. Making the most of your Prime Time and how high performers work as well as investigating doing One Thing at a Time and other useful tips and action plans.
Day 2 is all about agile management. It describes the skills, tools and techniques required to run the organisation in an agile manner. Several agile techniques are considered as well as the leadership skills that are necessary to run an agile business.
