Do you struggle with time management? Do you have more to do in a day than you do hours to do them? Are you on the go from when you wake up to when that you crash back into bed at night? Do you often wish you had more time in the day?
Organizations routinely squander their most precious and finite resource – their executives’ time. Time management is not just a personal-productivity issue over which you and your company have no control; it is an organizational issue whose root causes are embedded in corporate structure and culture. Executive time is often viewed as limitless, with all good opportunities treated as a high priority regardless of capacity to effectively drive them forward. And having more time doesn’t always mean getting more done, and it doesn’t guarantee you’ll get the right things done either. As it goes, the less time you have, the more you need effective time management.
Winston Churchill famously stated, “He who fails to plan is planning to fail.”
At The Burnie Group, we’ve learned that the secret to effective time management isn’t a life hack, it’s knowing where you’re spending your time, identifying opportunities and prioritizing planning. Successful executives are very careful about how they spend their time. No matter how you slice it, we all have 24 hours in a day, so the key lies in learning to use our time wisely.

By tackling this problem systematically, we ensure that skills and resources are being leveraged most effectively, to drive your organization’s strategic goals.
