What businesses can do to improve productivity

Would you like your team to work more productively? Do teammates often duplicate each other’s efforts? Do you feel like you’re not making the most of each workday? Good news: increasing your productivity isn’t hard. It just requires you to be more deliberate about how you manage your time.

Tips for improving your productivity

Imagine ending your workdays with a sense of satisfaction. You can, and so can your team, not by putting more time into work but by making more of your time at work. Here’s how:

Keep a to-do list

Work is more complex than ever, so don’t expect to remember everything you need to do. Instead, use a task manager to put your to-dos in writing so you can stop scrambling and free up time to work deliberately.

Make information easy to find

Instead of spending time looking through emails, spreadsheets, or even handwritten notes, keep information, like project plans and meeting notes, in one place to make sure everyone pulls from the same pool of knowledge.

Use templates to save time

For recurring projects and tasks, you don’t need to start from scratch. Creating templates not only saves time but also reduces the opportunity for mistakes and provides a process everyone can follow to get work done.

Share your work

One way to keep your team on the same page and avoid duplicating efforts is by using one tool to organize and share work. You can also eliminate confusion by making sure everyone knows who’s doing what by when.
