How people spend their time in a business is a major determinant of the business’ success or failure. Therefore, time accountability should be one of the most important disciplines at all levels.

Measuring management productivity (inputs) in addition to results (outputs) can be very revealing and can help refocus organisational energy! Is there a role for a (management) time accountant?
