Logistical Sequencing

Logistical Sequencing and Prioritization

  • One of the most intransigent problems facing many of our Clients today is the fact that every business requirement is deemed “Urgent,” or worse, “an Emergency.” The simple fact is that the last “Emergency” in the United States was 11 September, 2001. Additionally, in a properly run firm, less than 5% of the required business activities should be at the “Urgent” level.  One of the Benefits of working with Andover Partners is that your ability to properly sequence critical actions and decisions based on your Strategic Plan will be greatly enhanced because the “linkages” to your day-to-day business necessities (Must Do’s) and their relative importance will become crystal clear in real-time.  As a result, you will be able to instantly identify the truly “Urgent” tasks versus all the others.  Another Benefit of this process is you will feel less stress and more in control.
  • Decision Makers today face a simple, but unassailable fact:time is your most important commodity. As such, your ability to properly prioritize your decisions and actions is paramount to being able to successfully grow and build your firm. Using the Andover Partners Methodology, you will build a MUCH greater capacity(the skills you currently possess) & capability(the future skills you will develop) to make the best use of your time.  This is NOT time management: rather, it is Time Utilization.
  • One of the most common myths we see all the time with Clients and Prospects is that they believe that they can work (for example) “…endless 15 hour days.” Not to put too fine a point on it: this is total rubbish! Years of experience in the field with Clients and even more time in the military have clearly proven that the average person can only work productively about ten (10) hours a day.  There may be exceptions, however, these examples are just that – exceptions.  As such, it is VITAL that the hours you do work are the most advantageous possible.  One of the most life altering Benefits that you will receive from working with Andover Partners is the fact that you will be able to be BOTH more efficient and more effective in the use of your most important, finite resource: your time.
