Is working smarter mean being more productive? more effective?
Obviously two very loaded words. Been used thru out the history of IT and Business...
Here is a 2006 HBR article by Stever Robbins that gets into some of this:
"Working smart is risky. If you work smart, you'll have more free time.That means more leisure, shorter work hours, or . . . more work. If youuse the free time to take on more commitments, you're just as busy asbefore, but now you are so tightly scheduled that a slip in one projectcan cascade to many more projects. Happiness happens when productivityenables a higher-quality life, not frantic overachievement"
"To work faster, you'll have to get into the zone"
"Key to entering the zone is eliminating distraction"
"Your biggest distractions will come from you, though. You'll multitask"
"Another way to work smarter is by distinguishing busy from productive"
"The 80/20 rule says that 80 percent of your results come from just 20 percent of your efforts"
"Working faster, identifying your 80/20 opportunities, and usingopportunities for parallelism all take thought and planning before youreap the rewards"
And then you collaborate, collaborate, collaborate...
