In order to maximise personal and team effectiveness, every employee has to have a clear understanding of higher level business and team goals, and must be able to make good decisions about how they spend their time. Employees must be able to get work done on their own, and collaborate with others to achieve results. The Global Knowledge productivity solutions provide practical and concrete tools to help employees and teams work efficiently and effectively and achieve results.
Do you have enough time?

Business is dynamic. Yesterday's new approach is today's standard practice. Therefore, businesses need to develop and implement a continuous improvement strategy and process to stay ahead of the game. This requires the vigilance of every employee in focusing on high-impact/high-value processes to look for opportunities to improve what gets done and how it gets done. The Continuous Improvement programme has won awards and achieved international recognition for its practical tools, techniques and skills for rigorously examining and improving any business process, and adding real value.
Meetings are necessary activities required to communicate, collaborate and make decisions about important business processes, projects and objectives. It is estimated that employees spend up to 50% of their time in meetings. The challenge is many meetings are unnecessary, include the wrong people, or are not managed in a way to maximise productivity.
The Managing Meetings workshop has been developed to equip anyone who is required to the plan and lead meetings with the skills, knowledge and tools necessary to maximise the productivity of their meetings.
