Time management book “Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity” has topped international business book bestseller lists for eight years. Written by mild-mannered time-management superman David Allen, a Californian management consultant, the book outlines a time-management system for the information age which solves a problem most time-stretched workers didn’t know they had: clearing the clutter of unfinished tasks littering their brain-space , by collecting and processing every task, every piece of information, every promise – then managing them through a process of regular reviews.

This story was one of the first to kick off the Whakate online management journal, now a well-respected international business publication.
