Performance Management – Scheduling Tasks in Outlook Tasks … Do you ever notice that some people have a hard time remembering tasks that are not immediately urgent, but important somewhere out in the future? Since it is not something that has to be done now, they will procrastinate, and then if you don’t remind them, chances are they’ll forget.  Or if it is really important, they may remember it 5 times a day, and then ultimately forget it on the day that happens to be the best day to do the task. Sound familiar?

People who are good at remembering tasks have a system for scheduling tasks – we call it Date-Activating – by scheduling the task in Outlook Tasks.  It’s easy and only takes about 30 seconds.  Once tasks are date-activated, you can forget the task and let Outlook remember the task for you.  It’s foolproof – and it feels good to not have to remember anything anymore – and yet not forget anything anymore – ever.

Dupont Learning and Performance Management

Dupont Learning has spent many years tailoring time management programs to company Performance Management Systems.  For example, in the 90’s GE implemented a “Work Out” strategy – firing 10% of their workforce, and telling the remaining employees (now even busier) to adapt by “working out” lower value activities.  In response, Dupont Learning provided a training program, and a Priority Management System, to help employees manage work in a way that focused attention on their highest value activities, and at the same time, forced discrimination on lower-value tasks.  The result was that managers felt in control again, peeling away wasteful endeavors and zeroing in on goal-related assignments.
