Effective work requires good task management.

Our work time is limited every day, further so if we take into account the limited amount of attention we can devote to tasks during the day, and without which it becomes hard to fulfill the goals ahead of us. Furthermore, the human brain simply isn’t meant to optimize tasks, prefering automatic, emotional reactions, which permit quick, but not necessarily effective actions.

These traits helped us survive on the savanna thousands of years ago, but interfere with the challenges of the 21 st century. We must therefore force our brain to work within a certain framework, in order to make our actions more effective.

Areas of implementation:
  • improving individual and team prioritetization
  • increasing everyday effectiveness of software development and testing\increased motivation
  • optimal management of team engagement and energy
  • reduced burnout
