Just a quick note that a short article I wrote was published in the ALA’s Learning Exchange Newsletter – December 2019. It is titled How to Get Workflow Under Control – From Inbox to Done. The core of the article is a brief summary of the GTD Five Stages of Workflow.
Workflow is a concept that simply refers to how we move things from ideas to actions. One of the simplest workflow systems available is known as GTD, short for Getting Things Done. David Allen, a former management consultant, devised the system over twenty years ago and it has developed into one of the most heavily used approaches to handling knowledge work. Implementing the system requires very little set up time and can be done in any office situation. The system is immortalized in his famous book, Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity.
If you haven’t reviewed the five stages recently, or are new to the concept, take a few minutes to read the article. I posted it on my site for easy reading. It might inspire you to get some things done!
