MAX Time Management and Productivity Skills

MAX Time Management & Productivity Skills


Many people overestimate what they can do in one day and totally underestimate what they could do in 90 days.  

People always seem to be busy but busy with what?

With this in mind, we have designed this programme to help individuals take a step back to analyse how they use their time compared to some of the best practice of productive people across industry today.  This self-audit will identify areas where people can take action to improve their moment-by-moment productivity. 

During the programme participants will have the opportunity to audit their time management preferences against best practice with a view to adopting the appropriate skills, disciplines and processes to enable them to maximise their productivity.

Target Audience

This programme is for anyone who needs to take stock of the way they use their time with a view to take action and being disciplined to use the time they invest at work more productively.

Aim of the programme 

To enable participants to audit their own time management and productivity against best practice across industry, with a view to adopting the appropriate skills, disciplines and processes to enable you to maximise your productivity.
