Time and Motion, Work Study, Productivity Improvement Consultancy

“I feel that staff shouldn’t take as long as they do to carry out certain tasks. If I could improve working methods and work out how long these tasks ‘should’ take with a time and motion study, I could target my staff against these times, improve productivity and resource my area at the appropriate level.” FInancial Services Office Manager
