A missed deadline causes all sorts of problems for an organisation and for individuals; at worst it can disrupt plans, waste money and cost reputations. This book looks at what is necessary, in the context of time management, to ensure that you regularly hit deadlines and reap the rewards that can produce. Specifically it looks at:
- The nature of deadlines and how they fit with your overall personal organisation
- Setting them in the right way and making decisions about them in context of your overall responsibilities, objectives and priorities.
