Presentation on tracking and measuring personal productivity at Evernote HQ

We provide an overview of the main approaches to measuring and optimizing individual productivity, including time allocation, value-added, ROI, goal completion, values alignment, and work-life balance.

Participants are led step-by-step through the process of selecting their own productivity metrics and tracking tools. We also look at various methods of analysis to extract insights from the data collected and apply these insights to day-to-day productivity.
