The article: How CEOs Manage Time by Michael E. Porter and Nitin Nohria at the Harvard Business Review
What I think: This 2006 study by Porter and Nohria outlines some surprising finds for how CEOs spend their time. The article suggests that one strategy for managing time effectively is to focus on high-priority tasks, and to delegate or outsource less important tasks. Additionally, the article suggests that CEOs should also make time for activities that will help them think strategically, such as reading and reflecting. Overall, the article argues that successful CEOs are able to balance their time between short-term and long-term goals, and that effective time management is essential for a CEO’s success.
