Time is the 21st century must-have product according to the author of this report. Everyone seems to want more. For individuals, more time would mean they could feel in control; spend time with family and friends, make that tight deadline at work, or just relax. For organisations, the Working Time Directive, technological advances and debates about work-life balance are encouraging a re-think of work organisation and time management. And for the UK as a whole, whose productivity continues to lag behind that of the USA, working smarter rather than harder remains crucial to future economic success.
