An Effective Set of Priorities?

A Senior Manager’s Diary.

One senior Manager sat down to separate out what he regarded as the major responsibilities of his job.

He listed 6 key areas for himself.

A             Relationships with Head office

B             Long-term and strategic planning

C            Operational responsibility for particular on-going activities

D             Co-ordination function

E              Standard setting, performance, morale, priorities

F              External relations

He then analysed his diary for the previous three months and came up with the following approximate proportions of time spent on each of the key areas.

A             20%        D             25%

B             10%        E              5%

C             35%        F              5%

Should he have been worried?

If so what should the revised percentages be and why?
