Tired of Working 60 Hour Weeks?
Kim was recently interviewed by Cornelius Fichtner from The Project Management Podcast about How NOT to Work 60-Hour Weeks.
It's hard to juggle everything on your project. And just a glance at your company's project management methodology can make you despair about getting it all done.
But if we take a page from agile development, adding tools from behavioral psychology to Pomodoro, and incorporating pragmatic prioritization, you’ll be able to build a personalized time management system that fits your own working style. Come out of this interview with a manageable system for yourself and the tools to help your team members manage their own time and priorities.
This interview with Kim Wasson (LinkedIn Profile) was recorded at the exciting Project Management Institute (PMI)® Global Conference 2018 in Los Angeles, California.
In the interview we review the key components of a good time/priority management system, the smorgasbord of tools available, and we discuss how to create a tailored time management system and advise team members on ways to manage their time and priorities.
