In addition to Transition Time, apparently you need Buffer Time

Feb 08 2010

Where is all this extra time going to come from?!

It might seem efficient to have back-to-back appointments with small buffers to compensate for meetings running over and time to get to the next one, but what about the time needed to process what happened in the meeting? In every appointment I have, whether with a client about a project, a partner about a strategic alliance about collaborations weโ€™re getting underway, or a guest about the radio show, thereโ€™s usually some sort of follow-up that needs to be done after the meeting. Wouldnโ€™t it be more effective to do that while itโ€™s still fresh on my mind?
