Too often activity throughout companies is reactive. From CEO through to graduates the team moves from the most pressing task to the next most pressing task. The result is that the company will always be reactive. It is worth taking a moment to consider how time should be spent to enable the company to become proactive.

There is no right formula but for many companies I have worked with this provides a good starting point:

CEO

Building stakeholder relationships: 1 day

Personal development and future proofing the business: 1.5 days

Talent management and pipelining: 1 day

Overseeing implementation of the business strategy and plan: 1.5 days

 

Senior Management Team (SMT)

Talent management and development: 1 day

Core work: 3 days

Training (preparing, giving and receiving): 0.5 days

Planning and reporting : 0.5 days

 

Mid level management:

Talent management and development: 1 day

Core work: 3 days

Training (preparing, giving and receiving): 0.5 days

Planning and reporting : 0.5 day

 

Junior management

Talent management and development: 0.5 day

Core work: 3.5 days

Training (preparing, giving and receiving): 0.5 days

Planning and reporting : 0.5 day

 

Entry level employees

Core work: 4 days

Training (preparing, giving and receiving): 0.5 days

Planning and reporting : 0.5 day
