of Wilfred’s peapods in his garden contained 80% of the peas. 7) When you know how to manage your time you gain control. Rather than busily working here, there, and everywhere (and not getting much done anywhere), effective time management helps you to choose what to work on and when. This is essential if you're to achieve anything of any real worth. Be prepared to make changes to the way you operate. Challenge your own routines and habits and really think about how you spend your time. There are a variety of tools or strategies you can use to improve your time management skills. First let’s take a look at procrastination a root cause of poor time management. If you’ve found yourself putting off important tasks over and over again, you’re not alone. In fact, many people procrastinate to some degree - but some are so chronically affected by procrastination that it stops them achieving things they're capable of and disrupts their careers. The key to controlling and ultimately combating this destructive habit is to recognise when you start procrastinating, understand why it happens (even to the best of us), and take active steps to better manage your time and outcomes. 8) Generally speaking, employees want to be appreciated for their hard work. Business productivity software can bridge the gaps in communication and convey to each member of your team that they are valued. With your people working at their highest capabilities and your business aligned from top-to-bottom, you will be creating a workforce that is engaged, productive and loyal. Feeling valued is the key to employee loyalty which leads to greater business productivity. 9) An organisation's success is not just dependent upon having the right strategy and resources. It is also reliant upon the ability of its management to harness, direct and support teams and individuals to engage in delivering the organisation's mission and objectives. Managers play a critical role in delivering performance. Managers need to be able to consistently deliver performance and results and get the best possible performance from the teams and individuals they manage.

Effective performance management enables employees and teams to understand the goals of the organisation and to identify how individual and team outputs contribute to the achievement of organisational objectives in line with organisational values. The integration of people, planning and performance with organisational objectives develops individual, team and organisational capability leading to higher performance. An effective performance management process helps to establish and support the link between strategic business objectives and people's day-to- day actions and tasks. An effective goal setting system, combined with a process for tracking progression can contribute significantly to individual, team and organisational performance.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
