Getting things done usually focuses on personal time management. The ability for each person to get things done is very important, but how a person gets things done is usually influenced by what other people are doing.
To get things done fast, the To Do lists of everyone involved need to be coordinated. In today’s workplaces where people depend on each other to get work done, personally maintained To Do lists are no longer enough.
Unless each person’s actions are synchronized with other team member’s actions, it is very hard to keep work flowing. As soon a... [More]

Traditional management methods rely on managers to plan, organize, coordinate, lead and control tasks. But managers can’t be everywhere and do everything they need to do all the time. Consequently team members often don’t have the information they need to decide how to best use their time. This often leads to inefficiencies that reduce productivity.
Distributed management is a new method that can give managers and team members the critical task management information they need when and where they need it. However manually applying distributed management would tak... [More]

People want to do a great job, but often find it hard to decide what actions will generate the most value to their organization, their teams and themselves. For example, few people can answer the question “what do I need to do, when and with whom to best contribute to a strategy, change, project, process or task?” Or in other words, how do I know if what I am doing is a waste of my time and effort?
Me2Team sorts through relevant strategies, changes, projects and processes to identify what is important to each person. Then it shows each user t... [More]

There is little argument about the need for and benefits of effective governance to an organization’s bottom line. But sustaining governance processes is a major challenge.
Usually governance processes are measured in hindsight. This is like looking in the rear view mirror to decide the path ahead. What is needed is “proactive governance” where feedback from governance processes is provided in real-time.
Generally there are two broad groups of people involved with governance:
1. Those who set the goals and policy framework, develop aggregated reporting mechanisms, monitor... [More]

Many organizations spend a lot of time and effort evolving policies, processes and workflows to ensure that their organization is being effectively governed. But how can they be certain that these governance practices are actually being implemented?
Unfortunately the consequences of poor governance can be severe. Risks can unknowingly reach unacceptable levels, time can be wasted on missed and remedial actions, and reputations can be tarnished.
In most cases, people at the working level implement governance practices directed by managers. Managers need to... [More]

To get plans done successfully, you need to first develop a plan that is easy to understand. Then you need to get people to work together to implement the plan.
This sounds easy, but it can be very difficult to achieve in practice. Developing a plan that is understandable and doable for everyone involved is usually time consuming and stressful. But it doesn’t need to be.
Simple One Page Plan
TASKey has developed a simple one page plan template that makes it easy to develop a plan for any task in minutes. The one page plan template has been used by tens of... [More]

Plans take time and effort to develop and implement, but this is a good investment. If you can also save time, effort and stress by reusing a plan, then the investment has even more value.
Ideally, a plan that will be reused should document the goal; context; who did what, when and with whom; and the specific resources that were needed.
Most plans need to be updated while they are being done. So in many cases, reusing an initial plan is likely to miss critical information. Making the plan match what actually happened increases the value of the plan to implementers and provides ... [More]
