Summary of The Time Bandit Solution
Recovering Stolen Time You Never Knew You Had
Your employees lose 40% to 60% of their time to interruptions. The worst interrupters are your employees themselves.
Although author Edward G. Brown grew up in humble circumstances in the East Bronx, he developed a successful career managing Hollywood celebrities – including Hawaiian singer Don Ho – owning restaurants and nightclubs, producing chart-breaking music, and partnering with Roy Rogers, the “King of the Cowboys.” Brown, co-founder of the Cohen Brown Management Group, taught himself how to manage his diverse, often stressful professional activities. He bases his time-management program on his business and life experiences and on the academic fields of management theory, psychology and sociology. While he sometimes bogs down in time-consuming detail, getAbstract recommends Brown’s effective time-management program, and his sensible ideas about avoiding interruptions and managing your work schedule. His top-quality presentation makes this vividly illustrated (even glitzy) book an ideal choice for anyone who wants to work more efficiently.
