Join us for our Second book club! We'll be reading Making Work Visible: Exposing Time Theft to Optimize Work & flow. Get a copy of the book (Available at Auntie's Bookstore or at Amazon) and read by November 17th, then meet with the group to discuss. You'll earn 1 PDU for each hour spent reading (which you'll self-report on the PMI website).
Here's a description of the book (from the publisher):
If someone stole your wallet, you'd notice it. So why don't people notice when they are robbed of something much more valuable than their wallet - time?
Today's workers are drowning: nonstop requests for time, days filled to the brim with meetings, and endless nights spent heroically fixing the latest problems. This churn and burn is creating a workforce constantly on the edge of burnout.
In this timely book, IT time management expert Dominica DeGrandis reveals the real crime of the century - time theft, one of the most costly factors impacting enterprises in their day-to-day operations.
Through simple solutions that make work visible, DeGrandis helps people round up the five thieves of time and take back their lives with time-saving solutions. Chock-full of exercises, takeaways, real-world examples, and an easy-going writing style, readers will quickly learn effective practices to create high-performing workflows within an organization.
The technology world - and indeed the whole business world - is moving at a pace faster than ever before, and it shows no signs of slowing down. Instead of consigning ourselves to the pressure cooker of the modern world, it's time to elevate how we work. It's time to level up our game. It's time to make work visible.
The PMI Inland Northwest Chapter Board wishes you all the best in these trying times. Be well!
