From the Back Cover:

Accomplish so much more by focusing on how you organize and assign work

Sure, your people are busy, but is all their hard work achieving the goals that are essential to your department, your division, and your company? Most unproductive work in any organization stems from poor decisions about who should be assigned to do the task in the first place. Why Can't We Get Anything Done Around Here? shows you how to get bottom-line results, with a proven system for ensuring that everyone in your organization is working on the right task at the right time and being productive--not just busy!

Authors Robert E. Lefton and Jerome T. Loeb introduce the Task Management System, a simple and practical tool that any manager can use to make effective work assignment decisions. Illustrating each step of the task management process with live examples of good and bad decisions and practices, they describe a totally different approach to getting projects done effectively and identifying and rooting out unproductive work. Using this battle-tested system, you'll learn how to:

  • Zero in on tasks essential to success and assign them to the right people
  • Match tasks with people's technical, interpersonal, and decision-making skills
  • Avoid the five management errors that keep you from getting things done
  • Manage in a crisis mode--without the crisis
  • Maximize your own productivity
