*Note: there will not be a speaker tonight, but a very interesting video presentation by Dana Brownlee, Founder of Professionalism Matters, a corporate training company based in Atlanta.

Video Presentation Title: The New Time Management Model for Busy Project Managers

Video Presentation Description:  If you feel like your “to do” list is proof that you’re losing the time management battle on a daily basis, you may be stressed, but you’re certainly NOT alone!  Most of us struggle with how to get it all done each day and feel exasperated when we realize that WE JUST CAN’T DO IT ALL!!!  Project Managers seem to struggle more than most – being constantly pulled by clients, sponsors, team members, SMEs, functional managers, and other stakeholders seems to leave very little time to get everything done.  The bad news is that most of us end up running around like a hamster in a wheel trying to find ways to check off tasks as quickly as possible.  The good news is that there is another way – a totally different way – to approach time management.  The NEW time management model introduces 4 key steps that focus the individual on effectiveness more than efficiency. The model encourages you to ask yourself key questions like:

  • Am I doing the right things?
  • Am I getting the biggest bang for my minute/hour/day?
  • Am I leveraging other resources that could do this better/quicker than I?

 If you need a real paradigm shift to help you truly better manage your time, this session is for you!
