What's the Real Cost of Your Time?
Oftentimes, we forget to value time as we do other goods and services. It is easy to put a cost on technology, but more difficult to monetize the cost that technology saves us in terms of time and productivity. On the same note, it is also difficult to determine how much money we have lost fumbling through inadequate or outdated technology to accomplish our tasks throughout the day. In terms of technology due diligence, one of the most important steps is to evaluate the level of productivity that the technology will afford, and how it will contribute to the value of your time. Saving time on large projects by cutting corners is an unwinnable strategy, but doing those same tasks efficiently and completely in the same amount of time is smart business. What then needs to be evaluated is how you can leverage technology to save time, thereby saving money. If you find yourself saying multiple times throughout the day, "There has to be a better way to this," there probably is.
