    Maximizing Your Personal Productivity: How to Become an Efficient and Effective Executive
    Robert Pozen, Senior Lecturer
    Ben Shields, Lecturer


    Although the value of most professionals is measured in knowledge and results, many organizations still emphasize face time in the office. This course focuses on skills to boost personal productivity, including how to prioritize goals, align time allocation with goals, and develop techniques to accomplish lower-priority tasks. Designed to increase personal productivity through a series of case studies, practical exercises, and background readings, the program also addresses how to complete important projects efficiently, hold productive meetings with clear agendas and outcomes, and manage by delegation.
