“I spend less time on some of the necessary daily tasks by using new data collection tools we have created. The information I need for planning is easier to access. I have saved 1.5 hours a day since restructuring my activities. My time is more focused on high payoff activities. I spend more time on the ‘Big Picture’ and future planning for the NC Group.” JC, Computer Designs Inc.
“Delegating some of my day-to-day tasks to my team allowed me to free time up to set and measure goals for the team to work towards.

This includes creating an updated production schedule, prepare more KPI’s(key performance indicators) for my upper management.”
MD, FlexLink Systems, Inc.
