In this episode I discuss the reasons why we must kill the timesheet. The timesheet is the real cancer in the professions, consulting businesses and other knowledge businesses. There are 4 common reasons to support timesheets :-
- Cost accounting
- Project management
- Knowing what the team members are doing.
In this episode I discuss why each of these 4 reasons are throughly without substance.
The real problem though is that the statistics for clinically diagnosed depression amongst the professions are at rates four times higher than the national average. The timesheet is at the centre of this problem It creates a set of behaviours in a knowledge firm which are not conducive to creating a great business.
