Focused Performance: An Evening with Lou Russell

Choosing strategic technology does not guarantee that you'll be able to reap the efficiency rewards. Whether virtual learning, communities, or management systems, most technology implementations fail to deliver the ROI the business needed.

In this session, you will learn how to prioritize strategies, translate the strategies into projects assigned to a single project manager, and then create a dashboard for each project using an actionable plan with one task, one date, and one name for all work to be done. As a special bonus, you will also receive a copy of an e-book with reusable tools to leverage this process at home.

After attending this session, you will be able to:

  • Strategically say "yes" (to the most important work) and say "no" (to work that you shouldn't be doing right now)
  • Move systemically from strategy to project accountability, ensuring that business goals are met even in the chaos of today's workload
  • Manage the capacity of your team and create realistic workloads to ensure that your staff are engaged and productive
  • Drive project accountability by breaking a project into one task, one name and one date
