Event Details

Delivered through an ILM Accredited trainer in conjunction with the IQ Academy.

Efficient and effective planning and allocating of work is one of the most significant factors in maximising profitability and relates directly to making the best use of time available.

One of the most well-worn phrases you will hear in organisations is "we don't have enough time" – to which the reply (or response) is more than likely to be "work harder!” Working harder can lead to diminishing returns, frustration, over-work and stress and, ultimately, burnout. There is considerable truth in the old adage that ‘time costs money’ and if we are to be effective as managers, we need to have the skills to plan our own use of time and resources and that of our staff.

Developing techniques to plan for better use of time, to prioritise well and allocate work to the right people with the right skills will be fundamental to business and organisational success. Indeed, effective management of individual and collective workloads is a sure way to improving productivity.
