Distributed intelligence is a way to accomplish projects beyond the linear (Gantt Chart) processes. Creating self managing teams with visibility on progress and important indicators helps people and teams self correct through constant adjustments.

Looking at time management from the perspective of significance in addition to urgency and importance is something that is familiar to me. The focus to eliminate, automate, or delegate provides some thought about opportunities to involve others in solutions. For those items that must be either concentrated on and done now or procrastinated for the choice of doing later. This active patience approach is also an opportunity to feed the opportunities or starve the problems.
