Priority Management Research Unveils Startling Results
Priority Management Systems has unearthed some surprising findings over the past seven years on how executives squander and poorly manage their most precious resource:
The average manager spends 21 weeks a year in meetings, of which six are a complete waste of time.
Unplanned telephone calls take five minutes longer than planned calls, so a person who makes 12 calls a day wastes an hour by not taking five seconds to jot down what they wanted to say before dialing.
For the past seven years, Priority Management has taught busy executives how to better juggle their time without becoming slaves to the clock.
Rethinking the Way You Do Business
Priority Management has helped more than 100,000 North American executives organize themselves and their operations. Priority Managment does it by using a comprehensive system than makes executives think differently about how they run their businessess and their lives. In the process, Priority Management has become one of the most successful management concept programs ever to come out of Canada.

Priority Management helps a person develop her or his organizational skills, to increase productivity and do it with less stress. It is estimated that U.S. companies are spending upwards of $30 billion annually to improve the effectiveness of their organizations. Priority Management's goal is to help people in corporate America get control of their lives. They offer ongoing training to the client as well as a series of workshop consultations which are included to ensure that the client has made desired changes in self-management at the end of 30-45 days. Many of Priority Management's clients are from Fortune 500 companies such as Kodak, GTE, Xerox and IBM, but a growing market is also developing among mid-sized and small firms. Currently, over 3000 people are being trained each month, and there are over 100,000 graduates of the course.
Making the Most Out of Meetings: BusinessWeek Consults Priority Management
Meetings are among the most miserable facts of corporate life - especially if they aren't well run. And so many aren't. Experts say one-third of the time you spend in meetings is a waste. Consider the cost: A lengthy meeting of 10 middle managers costs about $3,000 in pay, benefits and overhead. If things get bogged down, says Daniel Stamp, founder of Priority Management, "Someone can say: This is a $3,000 meeting, so let's move on."
Something for Those Who Want Everything Now
When your psychological in-basket is crammed full, when there is no time for your spouse or the kids or the jog around the block you promised yourself, Priority Management would like to enter your life. People today want everything. They want to be a success at work, spend time with their kids, get regular exercise. They're trying to live up to an image. But fitting all those activities together can cause stress unless you're organized. That's where Priority Management comes in. Their training centers offer about a day and a half of training, follow-up counseling and a system that allows clients to order their priorities and plan their goals.
"It does work," said Guy Brisson, a Kodak vice president who took the course. "For me, it did a lot." Most of Kodak's new employees across Canada take the course..."It's made them more professional and productive in dealing with our customers and dealers," Brisson said.
