Time Management Course - The Performance Measurement Lie

Ever felt that performance measurement of your productivity is unjust?

That's probably because it is. It is not taken into consideration that there is a direct correlation to the levels of stress. Most employees have many tasks to undertake in the normal days work. Everyone does these tasks in different ways.

Some may do 1 task at a time and do them very slowly and accurately. Others may do them slowly and accurately whilst doing an additional task, thus the output is significantly increased. Or in management speak, higher productivity.

Then there is that other side. Because your such a hard efficient worker they keep loading you up with more and more work. Then when you cannot keep up with the heavy load you either react by retaliation to both your co-workers for being lazy and Management for not recognizing your efforts. In the interim management add salt to the wound and put you on a "Time Management Course" because you don't know how to manage your time effectively to complete all your work!!

Thus an endless spiral down the tube for you it is until your escorted from the building.

  1. Excellent post Admin. Now I have to really think about what I say here ;)
    I think it's important for people to also think about how powerful an effect comments can have, especially for new bloggers. A comment is both a validation that someone has read the content and connected with it - that can inspire someone to continue on interimmanager, or if too negative, make others consider shutting down.
    At any rate, I'll give this more thought but I'm bookmarking this post to share with Friends. Thanks again.
