Work Smarter, Not Harder?

Organizations are constantly trying to find ways to do more with less. How often have you heard someone say that we need to work smarter, not harder? It's a cliché that U.C. Berkeley Management Professor Morten Hansen decided to tackle with rigorous research--what does it mean to work smarter, not harder?

The results are now available in Morten's book Great at Work: How Top Performers Do Less, Work Better, and Achieve More. The book is filled with evidence-based insights that align very nicely with good project management practices.
