Time Management

Time Management

As a manager of Health Information Services, you must be able to organize your time in a fashion that reflects priorities, deadlines, and reasonable expectations. To-do lists, calendars, and delegation can help you organize time appropriately and effectively.

For this written assignment read Director Jones’ Monday Morning attached below. (Source:  AOE Case Study Manual, 1998).

Determine the priority of each of the 10 items listed at the end. Decide on priority #1, #2, or #3. Write your answers in Microsoft Word.

#1 – the task should be handled immediately #2 – the task should be delegated #3 – the task can be resolved/scheduled for a later date

Don’t rearrange the 10 tasks. Just priorities them.

For each item, list the action you will take and the rationale for the action.
