It is quite easy to say that we are drowning in work, and most business leaders accept the fact that they’re trying to do too many things, too quickly, and not getting the impact they want. At the same time, they are confronted with coaches and advisers stating the obvious that they need to do less and focus more. Unfortunately, this is not useful, merely correct.
In this talk, we will explore the underlying reasons behind too much work in process, and use those common patterns as the basis to identify a set of directional approaches that will support every company, as well as a number of tactical solutions to the specific root causes that are most commonly identified. Through applying these techniques, leaders will see common patterns and be able to apply directional corrections and specific countermeasures. These techniques will both create immediate wins and sustainable paths to improving business impact.
