Being disorganized creates stress. Planning and organizing achieves results. This entertaining and stimulating interactive course is designed to help people improve their organizational and time management skills and learn to create schedules and priorities that help them become successful.

The Cutting Edge managers learn about planning and organizing the hard way. Serena arrives in town two days early and discovers Marcus and Carol have not planned the upcoming conference and they each have different ideas. They blame Serena as a distraction, but she focuses on how they should manage distractions. Other team members comment on planning and organizing strategies. Serena gets serious and they soon set goals and commence a short burst planning session. They quickly begin making constructive suggestions and plans for the conference Serena reinforces that to plan effectively is to always establish how much, and by when.
