This month's blog is based on a recent HBR blog article that I just read, and I really do agree with the observations made.
How many times have you ever been told by your client or your boss to perform an urgent task, only to find out that the so-called urgent task was not so urgent after all? Well, this article puts a perspective on this ubiquitous work place phenomena.
HBR Blog article by Ron Ashkenas "Two Ways to Reduce Hurry Up and Wait Syndrome" gives some plausible explanation for this phenomena and some practical advice on how to deal with it.
Hopefully, the tips would be of practical value to the reader and help to avoid this.
