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?
