Time spent on data collection, additional analysis to plan work, manage resources, organize replacements, plan vacations... What can you do to keep your schedule and your head clear of the kinds of activities that take a manager's time and suck the energy out of them?

Doing nothing is an option. But changing nothing, nothing will change, the Manager will still have less time for high-level scheduling, and yet that is the very essence of a manager's job and how you are able to bring the most value to the organization

Is there anything we can do to make sure that - as a leader - you have more time and energy for most precious managerial activities?

Managers often approach it this way:

  1. Development and implementation of a dedicated method to enable fast and effective data collection and additional analyses that enable work planning, resource management, organisation of substitutes, holiday planning.
  2. Supporting the analysis of key KPIs in this area with a BI tool.
  3. Introducing in the current schedule (as cyclical tasks) activities related to data collection and conducting additional analyses that enable work planning, resource management, organising substitutes, planning holidays.

These are just examples of common – simple, spot-on – methods, but we can also act systemically. How?

How to address the problem using the system method?

Have you wondered what kind of change you would experience if a properly configured system could relieve you, as a manager, of the burden of data collection and additional analysis - in terms of work scheduling, resource management, organizing substitutes, scheduling your employees’ leaves? 

By freeing up his time in this way, the manager has additional time and energy for the high-level activities (e.g., strategic challenges, planning) that actually make him so valuable to the organization. 

It is through such high-level activities that their organization can grow rapidly. It is worth finding time and energy for this area of activity.

Above mechanism eliminates a manager's time and energy eater which boils down to time spent on data collection, conducting additional analysis to enable work and holiday planning, resource management, organization of replacements.
