Without specific planning and prioritization, staff become busy without being fully productive. Time and money are wasted on busywork that slows down the entire business with unnecesarry complications. A lack of clear priorities damages productivity. This results in less-effective meetings, less-effective daily efforts, and fewer contribution toward the overarching company goals. Wasted efforts directly translate into wasted time and money.
Being busy and being productive are two different things. Most people keep busy so they can avoid taking action on things they are afraid to pursue. Some employees spend an entire day tackling one simple task. On the other hand, some may get it done within an hour. Great leaders and managers should promote a productivity-focused environment that rewards employees for the amount of work they’re getting done rather than the hours they put in.
