Work ‘Faster’?

Can I work ‘faster’? Yeah sure I can work ‘faster’. But how do we define ‘faster’? By KPI points achieved? By documents produced per day? By minutes physically spent on my desk in front of my PC? By number of emails sent?

“Faster”? Or more “efficiently”? Or the even more abstract “better”?

We’re not a conveyor-belt factory unfortunately, and we’ve agreed that we’re a creative technology company. Quantitative measurements on our quality of work is not… I don’t know I just don’t think it can adequately tell the whole story.

Bonus link: “How to Fix the World — Chapter: High Order Fundamentals” — You can hire a management consultant to fine-tune your factory. But probably not your life. Why? Because you probably wouldn’t judge the success or failure of your life based on how efficient and productive you’d been at making PowerPoint decks. From: www.howtofixtheworld.org
