Manage This! is a management and productivity blog designed to help people find information and tools to do their jobs more efficiently and effectively. This stuff is what I use in my own job on a regular basis, and is intended to be immediately useful.

My Background – I manage an engineering team in the U.S. with additional team members in Asia. I work for one of the world’s largest global companies with >325,000 employees world-wide and over $150 billion in annual revenues. Prior to joining the corporate world, I served as an officer in the U.S. Army with various units based in the U.S. and Europe.
